Predictors of Fungal Keratitis-Related Corneal Perforation Identified
Monday, August 28, 2017 | Medical Studies
Baseline presence of hypopyon and infiltrate depth and size are significant predictors of corneal perforation and/or need for therapeutic penetrating keratoplasty (TPK) in patients with severe fungal keratitis, researchers say, according to a report in Medscape.
To determine which patients might be at higher risk of poor outcomes from infectious keratitis, Dr. Jennifer Rose-Nussbaumer of the University of California, San Francisco, and colleagues conducted a secondary analysis of the Mycotic Ulcer Treatment Trial (MUTT) II, a multicenter placebo-controlled trial that ran from 2010 to 2015.
