  • A 35-year-old previously healthy woman came to the emergency room with complaints of worsening left eye pain over three days. She was found to have a marginal corneal infiltrate at the 8 o’clock position. She was treated with topical antibiotics (Moxifloxacin) four times daily. She returned for follow up 2 days later with subjective improvement but no improvement on examination. No evidence of blepharitis was noted. A steroid eye drop (Prednisolone Acetate 1%) four times daily was added. She returned several days later with thinning of the peripheral cornea as seen below.
