Abstract [en]

Keratitis due toCandida parapsilosisorCorynebacterium macginleyiis uncommon. We present a patient with several risk factors who suffered two subsequent corneal infections caused by these pathogens and healed with topical conservative therapy. The important factor was the early detection of infection. Fluconazole solution administered topically as eye drops combined with regular debridement proved in this case a successful alternative to systemic antifungal treatment. With a perceived recurrence of the keratitis, one must take into account the involvement of other pathogens present. The previous use of an antifungal solution other than a conventional eye drop could be an additional risk factor for a second bacterial infection, but the benefits should still rule in favor of such a treatment.
