Background: To report the use of intrastromal voriconazole injections combined with corneal debridement to treat deep recalcitrant fungal keratitis. History and Signs: Three patients (2 female and 1 male) with culture proven fungal keratitis (1 Fusarium, 1 Candida, 1 Pseudallescheria boydii) were included in this study. The patients were treated with repeated intrastromal voriconazole (100 mg/1 ml) in combination with corneal debridement. Therapy and Outcome: The mean age of the patients was 65 years. The mean number of injections was 5. The patients were injected every 2-3 days. This technique required repeated corneal debridement to achieve complete resolution in these three cases. Conclusions: Repeated intrastromal injection of voriconazole in combination with corneal debridement appears to be an effective and safe way to treat recalcitrant fungal keratitis, even in Fusarium keratitis.
