PMID 20447128

Abstract

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis is a common cause of ocular morbidity. Resistance to aciclovir is probably under recognized. We describe three cases of aciclovir-resistant herpes simplex virus keratitis treated with systemic foscarnet and present a review of the pharmacological options available to manage this condition.
