Tongabay Cumurcu, Abuzer Gunduz, Mufide Cavdar


The use of contact lenses is the most common cause of bacterial keratitis. Pseudomonas aurogenoza is the most common factor. We aimed to present diagnosis, treatment and follow up a 21 yeas old female patient with endophtalmitis secondary to multi-drug resistance, a stubborn Pseudomonas aeruginosa keratitis due to the inappropriate use of soft contact lenses.

Key words: Contact lens, keratitis, endophthalmitis, pseudomanas aeruginosa, drug resistance, imipenem
