Abstract

A retrospective case report on the management of a 56-year-old man who was diagnosed with Fusarium keratitis with an associated iris fungal nodule. He presented with persistent right ocular pain, redness, photophobia and reduced vision following an injury six weeks earlier. Conservative management with topical antibiotics and intracameral injections was successfully used to treat a rare case of Fusarium keratitis with an associated fungal iris nodule. The patient had complete resolution of his vision. Therefore, conservative management of the fungal nodule is a successful therapy without the risk of anterior chamber dissemination, which may occur with surgical resection.
