In addition, she had symptoms also in the fellow eye, for 4 days; that eye was moderately injected and the corneal epithelium appeared dusty. Nosocomial Ad8 infection was suspected. After a further 2 days, the right cornea showed epithelial infiltrates. The erosion in the left eye healed within a further 3 days, but the cornea started to show many epithelial infiltrates. Dense subepithelial opacities/infiltrates interfering with vision developed in both corneae; they were still present a year after the infection.

In Case 1, Ad8 infection was considered because of a history of a recent journey to a region where Ad8 is endemic, but the tests showed Ad3. In Case 2, a combination of red eye and general symptoms implied pharyngoconjunctival fever, but a primary HSV infection, often not thought of at the patient’s age because rare, could have given similar initial symptoms; a careful observation of the morphology revealed the true cause. Severe general symptoms are of serious concern to the parents (daughter in Case 3) and may even result 3 in hospital admission (Case 4); in the latter patient, the combination with red eye was an important diagnostic clue.

18 (a) Four weeks after symptom onset, the cornea shows rounded/abnormal cells, individual (arrowheads) or grouped (arrows). (b–c) Subepithelial opacities/infiltrates containing rounded/abnormal cells (arrowheads) 17 months after onset. In (c) are visible surface elevations (dark, arrow) present in the same area as in (b); the surface appears intact.
