Procope, MD, Horizon Eye Care Group, 822 Marietta Avenue, Lancaster, Pennsylvania 17603, USA. Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery 23(8):p 1271-1272, October 1997. | DOI: 10.1016/S0886-3350(97)80327-6 Buy Metrics Abstract A 62-year-old man had nonsimultaneous, four-incision radial and astigmatic keratotomy in both eyes. Both surgeries were uneventful. Twenty-one months later, the patient developed a corneal ulcer within one of the radial incisions in the left eye. Cultures were positive for Pseudomonas. Although Pseudomonas infections in postRK eyes have been reported, late-onset Pseudomonas keratitis in a patient with four radial incisions and no history of contact lens wear is contrary to previous reports. © Williams & Wilkins 1997.
