Abstract

Purpose. Infiltrative keratitis is a common complication associated with extended wear of hydrogel lenses. Causative bacteria are often isolated fromthe lens at the time of an event. We report a case where three repeated occurrences of infiltrative keratitis were associated with contamination of the contact lenses by Abiotrophia defectiva. Methods, A 34-year-old man participating in a clinical trial of extended wear hydrogel contact lenses experienced three episodes of infiltrative keratitis. The clinical presentationwas observed using a biomicroscope. At the time of each event, the contactlenses were removed aseptically and ocular swabs were taken fur bacterial identification and enumeration. The condition was monitored until full resolution. Results. The condition was characterized by irritation, marked bulbar and limbal injection, and multiple focal subepithelial infiltrates. Manyof the infiltrates also showed overlying staining with fluorescein. In each of the three events of infiltrative keratitis, A. defectiva was cultured from the contact lens and ocular swabs. Conclusion. This is the first reported occurrence of infiltrative keratitis associated with A. defectiva contamination of contact lenses.
