Abstract

PURPOSE: To describe a case of a subconjunctival mycetoma that developed after a patient received a sub-Tenon's injection of triamcinolone acetonide. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 76-year-old white male presented with a subconjunctival mass in the area of a previous posterior sub-Tenon's corticosteroid injection for wet age-related macular degeneration. Microbiologic and pathologic analysis of the mass revealed the causative organism to be the pigmented fungus Exophiala jeanselmei. CONCLUSION: This is the first published case of an Exophiala-associated subconjunctival mycetoma.
