Abstract

This report is of an unusual case of keratitis in a young healthy man who presented with minor trauma to his left eye. At examination, a characteristic ring infiltrate was seen in the centre of the cornea. Normal saline wet mount preparation of the corneal scraping showed unusual motile trophozoites of a parasite. Culture on non-nutrient agar with Escherichia coli overlay was negative. The patient was treated with topical neomycin, polymyxin B, and bacitracin eye drops and responded well to treatment.
