Corneal toxicity due to exposure to many chemicals and medications have been described in the literature. We present a case of toxic keratopathy by corneal exposure to salivary secretion of a frog. A 40-year-old male patient reported a sudden splash of frog saliva in his right eye while he was examining it at a close distance. Corneal punctate epitheliopathy and stromal oedema and Descemet folds were the initial clinical findings, which completely recovered on the 2nd control day of topical dexamethasone and ofloxacin treatment. We aimed to show the toxic effects of animal-derived secretions on the cornea as a rare cause of toxic keratopathy.
