A patient from a rural background developed corneal ulceration following an insect hitting the eye. Corneal scrapings when processed for bacterial and fungal growth yielded Nigrospora, a contaminant fungus. This fungus has been quoted in literature as a common contaminant of no pathogenic significance. Herein, we describe its role as the causative agent of corneal ulcer, which has not been reported thus far.
