Mould identification: a virtual self assessment

Case history

A 53 year old farmer presented with complaints of pain, redness and irritation of the left eye following ocular injury caused by hay 5 days earlier. Slit-lamp examination of the affected eye revealed a corneal ulcer with irregular margins. Scrapings were taken from the base and edges of the corneal ulcer by a sterile blade. Microscopic examination of these scrapings revealed the presence of septate fungal hyphae and the culture below was grown.
