Abstract

Cat scratch disease (CSD) is a common infectious disease, however, its association with disciforme keratitis is a previously unreported ocular complication. With the use of the 16S rDNA-PCR technique with subsequent DANN sequencing on corneal material obtained by corneal scrape we were able to identify Bartonella henselae in an unusual form of disciforme keratitis.
