Brevundimonas vesicularis keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis.
J Cataract Refract Surg. 2010 Feb; 36(2):340-3.JC

Abstract

A 45-year-old woman developed a corneal infiltrate 14 months after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) enhancement in the left eye. The LASIK flap was lifted, scraped, and irrigated with fortified vancomycin and ceftazidime. Scraped samples were cultured and grew Brevundimonas vesicularis. The patient remained on topical ceftazidime until improvement was noted and was then switched to topical levofloxacin. The keratitis resolved on antibiotic agents with strong gram-negative coverage and a steroid. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a B vesicularis ocular infection.
