Abstract
Purpose: To compare the safety and efficacy of topical versus intrastromal injection plus topical voriconazole for treatment of deep and/or resistant fungal keratitis. Methods: A prospective, randomized study performed on eyes with deep and/or resistant fungal keratitis during the period from April 2011 to March 2012. Only those patients with proven clinical and laboratory evidence of fungal keratitis (with smears and/ or cultures) were included in the study. The eyes were randomly distributed into two groups: group (A) included eyes treated with intrastromal injection (s) of voriconazole (50μg/0.1 ml) plus voriconazole eye drops 1% and group (B) included eyes treated with topical voriconazole eye drops 1%. The results were analyzed and compared as regards the safety and efficacy of each method of treatment.
