Abstract

A patient with severe non-healing microscopically proven Nocardia keratitis was treated with maximal topical amikacin followed by amniotic membrane transplantation AMT 2 months later single-layer epithelial side-down.
Epithelial healing was achieved, but neovascularization continued.
This case report indicates that AMT combined with topical antibiotic provides pain relief and allows epithelial healing in severe Nocardia keratitis.
