Keratitis could be a condition during which the eye's tissue layer, the front a part of the attention, becomes inflamed. The condition is commonly marked by moderate to intense pain and requently involves any of the subsequent symptoms: pain, impaired sight, photophobia, red eye and a 'gritty' sensation.
Treatment of Keratitis depends on the cause of the keratitis. Infectious keratitis can progress rapidly, and generally requires urgent antibacterial, antifungal, or antiviral therapy to eliminate the pathogen. Antibacterial solutions include levofloxacin, gatifloxacin, moxifloxacin, ofloxacin.
Fusarium is the most common cause of fungal keratitis in Mexico. Most cases (43/54, 79.6%) improved with topical antifungal therapy. Trauma history was observed in 57.4% and a history of agricultural activity in 34.4%. Signs were redness (100%), epithelial defects (98.3%), superficial corneal ulcer (95.1%), anterior chamber inflammation (91.8%), and satellite infiltrates (75.4%). In 50% of cases, the treatment was topical ketoconazole 2%; in 34.2% of cases. Ongoing Research is being done at Keratitis Centers.
