PMID:  8037917     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two cases of typically appearing crystalline keratopathy both grew an alpha haemolytic streptococcus and had many of the features common to other cases. In one case, the use of topical and systemic antibiotics alone resulted in resolution of the disease, while in the second case even after corneal transplantation, a recurrence occurred which required further long-term antibiotics plus a repeat transplant.
