Abstract

Plesiomonas shigelloides rarely causes extraintestinal human disease, and infection of ocular tissues is even rarer, never having been reported as the sole pathogen of posttraumatic ocular infection. We report the first case of infectious keratitis due solely to P. shigelloides following traumatic corneal laceration and a literature review with regard to P. shigelloides ocular disease.
