Figure 1: Clinical and microscopic photographs of the keratitis case. (a) Peripheral corneal ulcer and surrounding infiltration at the 7.00 O'clock position 2 mm away from the limbus. (b) A wet mount of scraped material in 10% KOH revealed hyaline, septate, branched fungal hyphae when examined under a light microscope (unstained, 400). (c) A wet mount of scraped material in 10% KOH revealed the presence of a mite when examined under a fluorescent microscope (unstained, 400). (d) The presence of fungal hyphae and mite both seen together in the scraped material (unstained, 400). The bar represents a scale of 50 μm
