Kocuria rosea canaliculitis: a clinicomicrobiological correlation.Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2014 Nov-Dec; 30(6):e139-40.OP
Kocuria rosea is usually a nonpathogenic commensal colonizing the skin and oropharynx but can become an opportunistic pathogen in immunocompromised states. Documented cases of any infections with K. rosea are exceedingly rare. This study reports the first case of canaliculitis with K. rosea, its clinicomicrobiological correlation, and management.
