Abstract

A 29-year-old man presented with a 5-day history of a red eye with a purulent discharge. Three years previously, he had undergone laser in situ keratomileusis elsewhere. A diagnosis of gonococcal keratoconjuntivitis was made clinically and confirmed with culture. The patient subsequently developed diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK). The keratoconjunctivitis and DLK resolved with antibiotic therapy and topical steroids. The cause and effect relationship of these 2 uncommon events is of interest.
