We report clinical features, culture-sensitivity profile and outcomes of infectious keratitis caused by Pseudomonas oryzihabitans. A 70 year-old male presented with acute pain, redness and diminution of vision in left eye since 6 days. Clinically, was diagnosed as infectious keratitis and microbiology revealed gram-negative bacilli. Culture showed Pseudomonas oryzihabitans growth. Initiation of appropriate antibiotics with steroids led to the resolution of keratitis. Pseudomonas oryzihabitans causes fulminant keratitis with rapid deep stromal involvement. However, timely intervention with appropriate topical anti-bacterials with steroids may lead to successful outcomes.
