Streptococcus pneumoniae keratitis, a case report

Virginia Bautista Ruescas

Infectious keratitis is a common disease of the cornea that is potentially blinding. We report a case of microbial keratitis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae in a man with a one-week history of ocular pain, photophobia, redness and blurred vision. Laboratory evidence of infective agent in a corneal sample is recommended in severe cases for a correct diagnosis and treatment.
