A 48-year-old female underwent a Tenon's patch graft for a perforated ulcer done during coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) times. Five months later, the patient presented to us with Tenon's graft melt due to the infection of the graft and the corneal stroma with Curvularia. The patient was successfully treated with appropriate topical, commonly used antifungal therapy with a good outcome. To our knowledge, this is the first documentation of case describing the predisposing factors, clinical features, and the management of autologous Tenon's graft infection with Curvularia fungus, a rare occurrence in literature.
