Bilateral Achromobacter xylosoxidans keratitis after laser in situ keratomileusis.
J Cataract Refract Surg. 2010 Jun; 36(6):1045-7.JC

Abstract

A 31-year-old man was referred to us 2 months after bilateral laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). On presentation, the corrected distance visual acuity was hand motion in the right eye and 20/25 in the left eye. Slitlamp examination showed a diffuse central stromal infiltrate, flap melting, and hypopyon in the right eye and marked interface opacities with crystal-like edges in the left eye. Flap lift and irrigation were performed. Because of the progressive keratitis, penetrating keratoplasty (PKP) was done in both eyes. Achromobacter xylosoxidans was isolated from both corneal buttons, and therapy was changed to chloramphenicol prednisolone eyedrops 8 times a day and intravenous meropenem 500 mg 3 times a day according to sensitivity testing. Two months after surgery, both transplants remained clear.
