Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Plesiomonas shigelloides rarely causes extraintestinal human disease, and infection of ocular tissues is even rarer, never having been reported as the sole pathogen of post-traumatic ocular infection. We report the first case of infectious keratitis due solely to P. shigelloides following traumatic corneal laceration and a literature review regarding P. shigelloides ocular disease.
