We report here a case of keratomycosis by Exserohilum rostratum. An 18-year old female patient presented with pain and watery discharge from the left eye since 10 days. Clinically the case was diagnosed as keratomycosis. Gram stain and KOH preparation of corneal scrapings revealed fungal elements. Fungal isolate was identified as Exserohilum rostratum by standard techniques.
