Abstract

Phoma species is a phytopathogen which has the ability to cause keratitis. This case report presents as a fungal keratitis with no pigmentation raising least suspicion of dematiaceous fungal keratitis. Microbiological reports suggested infection with Phoma species. Though the patient response to topical antifungals was poor, a significant response was noted with intrastromal voriconazole.

Keywords: Phoma; Keratitis; DNA
