First report of Tsukamurella keratitis: association between T. tyrosinosolvens and T. pulmonis and ophthalmologic infections.
J Clin Microbiol. 2009 Jun; 47(6):1953-6.JC

Abstract

We describe the first two cases of Tsukamurella keratitis, presented as eye pain with or without blurring of vision. One case was associated with trichiasis and the other with contact lens wear. The two isolates were identified as T. tyrosinosolvens and T. pulmonis, respectively, by phenotypic characterization and 16S rRNA sequencing.
