Pathogenic Fungi of Keratomycosis -Analysis of 8 cases-
ABSTRACT
Fungal infection of the eye, especially keratomycosis is relatively uncommon, however recently presents seriously increasing problem with increased topical use of steroids and antibiotics. During the period from 1978 to 1981, fungi recovered from corneal scrapings of the 8 patients with keratomycosis were 3 cases of Fusarium species, and one each case of Geotrichum candidum, Sepedonium species, Aspergillus species, Cephalosporium species, and Alternaria species. Among these, to our best knowledge, Geotrichum candidum and Sepedonium species have not been reported in Korean literature.
