Abstract

A description of a case is presented on a relationship between paper-based documents as a risk factor for fungal keratitis. A 32-year-old woman, a long-term contact lens user, presented with fungal keratitis in her right eye caused by Fusarium spp. while working with books and old documents as a librarian. Her visual acuity was hand motion in the right eye. She was satisfactorily treated with topical antifungal and antibiotic agents.

Resumen

Pretendemos describir mediante un caso clínico la relación entre los archivos en formato de papel como factor de riesgo para queratitis fúngicas. Para ello, presentamos un caso de una mujer de 32 años, usuaria crónica de lentes de contacto, que se presentó con una queratitis fúngica en su ojo derecho producida por Fusarium spp. mientras trabajaba con libros y documentos antiguos en su profesión como bibliotecaria. Su agudeza visual era de movimiento de manos en el ojo derecho. Fue tratada satisfactoriamente con antibióticos y antifúngicos tópicos, con buena evolución.
