Colletotrichum is a rare fungal pathogen, which is known to cause anthracnose in plants and keratitis or subcutaneous infections in humans. Among the seven Colletotrichum species reported in eye infections, truncatum species is usually virulent with poor visual prognosis even after surgical treatment. Here we report a case of Colletotrichum truncatum keratitis in a young boy with thorn injury that completely resolved with topical natamycin and voriconazole.
