Herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis is a potentially blinding condition of the eyes. HSV can afflict any of the anatomical layers of the cornea, sometimes more than one layer at one time, and presents with a spectrum of clinical manifestations. Recalcitrant course, recurrences, and variable response to therapy can make managing these patients a true challenge, particularly in the pediatric age group and recipients of corneal transplants. Here, we report a series of five cases of HSV keratitis from our practice that presented with diagnostic and management dilemmas and were successfully managed with a combination of medical and surgical treatment.
