PURPOSE To investigate the spectrum of fungal species causing keratitis and to test antifungal drug susceptibility to each isolate using Etest. METHODS Microbial cultures were performed for patients who were clinically diagnosed with fungal keratitis between September 2002 and July 2004. Modified slide culture was established to identify the fungal species of the isolates. Etest (AB BIODISK, Solna, Sweden) was applied to determine the antifungal agent susceptibility of each isolate to… CONTINUE READING
