In this study, a descriptive Study review of medical records of all microbiologically diagnosed cases of Bacterial & Fungal keratitis seen over a period of 3 years at a tertiary care centre were studied with the following objectives
A corneal scraping was then performed, and the clinical manifestation was highly suspected to be a fungal keratitis. Therapy was modified with 2 mg/ml topical voriconazole 1% 4/die and moxifloxacin 0.3% 6/die.
The major indications for PK among these patients were fungal keratitis (8 eyes, 34.8%), herpes simplex virus keratitis (5 eyes, 21.7%), keratoconus (3 eyes, 13.0%), and bullous keratopathy (3 eyes, 13.0%).
Patients with clinical features of fungal keratitis, with positive corneal scrapings for fungi, and those who followed up for a minimum period of three months after recovery from infection were included.Other causes of infectious keratitis were excluded.
