Fusarium keratitis--multiple states, 2006.

Abstract

On March 8, 2006, CDC received a report from an ophthalmologist in New Jersey regarding three patients with contact lens--associated Fusarium keratitis during the preceding 3 months. Initial contact with several corneal disease specialty centers in the United States revealed that other centers also have seen recent increases in Fusarium keratitis. This report summarizes the public health response to date in the United States and provides important prevention messages for contact lens users.
