A patient is discussed who developed a fungal corneal ulcer due to Acremonium (Cephalosporium) Recifei after a piece of a coconut flew into his eye while he was cracking it. Treatment consisted of keratoplasty, Miconazole as ointment and intravenously, and Ketaconazole orally. Diagnosis and treatment of fungal corneal ulcers are discussed briefly.
