To assess the effect of corticosteroid on the establishment of experimentally induced keratomycoses, rabbits were injected subconjunctivally with triamcinolone acetonide on two successive days before inoculation with Candida albicans, Aspergillus fumigatus, or Fusarium solanae. Whereas isolate recovery rates declined steadily in normal control corneas, they remained stable over 15 days in corticosteroid-treated corneas. Clinically, inflammation was equivalent (A fumigatus and F solanae) or… CONTINUE READING
