ON THE PROBLEM OF DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSTICS OF A CORNEAL ULCER OF DIFFERENT ETIOLOGY IN THE CHILDREN (A CASE REPORT)

Abstract


The authors report a case of a herpetic corneal ulcer complicated by the toxico-allergic eye reaction. At the early stage of the disease, it was interpreted as Acanthamoeba keratitis associated with the wearing of contact lenses. The diagnosis was based on the results of analysis of the clinical picture and course of the disease. It was later confirmed by additional studies and the results of antiviral therapy.
