Eye Cornea Clouding Keratitis

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see a cloudy cornea probably indicative of keratitis.

The rest of the clinical examination will guide the path toward a diagnosis (see related gallery).

PERSPECTIVE: One of the most common causes of keratitis in infants and children is syphilis, among other infectious and parasitic disorders. Metabolic disorders may be the cause of clouding but are not associated with inflammatory changes.
