PURPOSE To investigate the epidemiology, risk factors, fungal spectrum and to test antifungal drug susceptibility of these isolates at a tertiary eye care referral centre in central China. METHODS The medical and microbiology records of 2064 culture-proven cases (2064 eyes) of fungal keratitis diagnosed at Henan Eye Institute between January 2000 to March 2009 was retrospectively reviewed. The fungal isolates were identified and a subgroup of 103 isolates were subjected to drug susceptibility… CONTINUE READING
