PMID:  313414     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Since the cornea responds to various toxic stimuli by swelling and ulcerating, these changes may assume a dendriform pattern. A case of herpes simplex dendritic keratitis is presented along with its treatment. In addition, several other etiologic sources of an arborescent keratitis are discussed as to their differentiation and management implication.
