A Prospective Microbiological Study on Suppurative Corneal Ulcer at a Tertiary Teaching Hospital in Bhavnagar , Gujarat , India

  title={A Prospective Microbiological Study on Suppurative Corneal Ulcer at a Tertiary Teaching Hospital in Bhavnagar , Gujarat , India},
  author={T. K. Agasti and Rashmi Parmar and Kairavi J. Desai},
It is important to study the epidemiological features and predisposing factors of suppurative corneal ulcers. Subsequently, it is also important to find out its causative microbial agents and their antimicrobial sensitivity-resistance patterns in a particular climate and culture of a particular region of a country. This prospective study was carried out on patients suffering from suppurative corneal ulcer to know the particular bacterial and fungal (not viruses) prevalence as a causative…

PURPOSE To determine the epidemiological pattern and risk factors involved in suppurative corneal ulceration in Gangetic West Bengal, eastern India, and to identify the specific microbial agents

Epidemiological and Microbiological Profile of Infectious Corneal Ulcers in Tertiary Care Centre , Kumaon Region , Uttarakhand Dr

Infective Keratitis in Kumaon region, Uttarakhand most often occurs after a superficial trauma with vegetative or organic materials and has important public health implications for the treatment and prevention of suppurative corneal ulceration in this region of India.

Aetiology of suppurative corneal ulcers in Ghana and south India, and epidemiology of fungal keratitis

Infections of the cornea due to filamentous fungi are a frequent cause of corneal damage in developing countries in the tropics and are difficult to treat and microscopy is an essential tool in the diagnosis of these infections.

Predisposing Factors and Aetiologic Diagnosis of Infectious Corneal Ulcer

The findings of this study would help the ophthalmologists in the management of their patients with keratitis as well as identify causative pathogens and predisposing factors of corneal ulcer presenting at tertiary care hospitals in Dhaka.

Etiological agents of suppurative corneal ulcer: Study of 56 cases

Lomefloxacin, Tobramycin and Gentamicin were found to be better efficacious drugs against most of the bacterial pathogens noted in in-vitro susceptibility testing and are better choice of antibiotics to treat bacterial suppurative corneal ulcers patients.

The most common isolates from the corneal ulcers with antimicrobial pattern of bacterial isolates were Aspergillus spp 50 followed by Fusarium spp 19, and Staphylococcal aureus 57 was isolated as commonest bacterial agent.

Microbial keratitis: aetiological diagnosis and clinical features in patients admitted to Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia.

Central corneal ulceration is a problem among patients presenting with microbial keratitis in HUSM, and often occurs after cornesal trauma, which has important public health implications for the treatment and prevention of visual morbidity due to an infective cause.

Aetiological diagnosis of microbial keratitis in South India - a study of 1618 cases.

The findings of this study show that there is a region wise variation in the predominance of corneal pathogens, which has an important public health implication for the initiation of therapy.

Bacterial Keratitis and Fungal Keratitis In South Kerala : A Comparative Study

Incidence of fungal keratitis is significantly high in south Kerala compared to other country and this regional information is very valuable in the initial diagnosis and better management of suppurative ker atitis before microbiological confirmation.
