Abstract

Fungal keratitis is also known as the cornea fungal disease. Leber first reported in 1989. The disease is prevalent within a world-wide, more stubborn, which can be blinding fungal infection, it is often accompanied by corneal ulcers, purulent infection and impaired vision, severe corneal perforation can occur, endophthalmitis complications and even threatening the entire eye, causing blindness or loss of the affected eye, seriously affecting the health and quality of life of patients. In recent years, due to the plant corneal trauma, chronic ocular surface diseases, eye surgery and corneal transplants have increased. The broad-spectrum antibiotics, corticosteroids abuse and improper use of contact lenses, as well as A worker DS, diabetes, systemic immune deficiency disease and other immunocompromised populations also increase. It is resulting in the incidence of fungal keratitis, fungal keratitis significantly increased incidence of occult infection progresses rapidly, early diagnosis is difficult; ophthalmology less common antifungal agents, and pathogenic fungi resistant serious difficulties effective treatment. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment is essential to control the infection. Therefore, the master of fungal keratitis law etiological and epidemiological characteristics, understand the diagnosis and treatment of common fungal infection, early and accurate diagnosis of the disease, timely and effective treatment and prognosis of recovery is important.
