A case of deep mycotic keratitis is presented, caused by Aspergillus. The organism was demonstrated in the histopathology specimen obtained by keratectomy. The disease led to perforation of the cornea, therefore penetrating grafting was performed. The uvea and the lens were al&o affected by the toxins.

In spite of the fact that corticosteroids in this country are being used more cautiously than elsewhere there is no doubt that micotic ulcers are more common than diagnosed. Acta Ophthalmologica 2016;42(2):29-32.
