Six months after a successful cornea transplant, the patient reports two weeks of red eye and a “white spot” on the cornea.

The most likely cause for this patient’s presentation is:   

a. a loose suture at 12 o’clock and it must be removed immediately
b. an episode of epithelial rejection and the patient should use Q1 hour topical steroids
c. a bacterial or fungal infection - the area should be cultured and empirical antibiotics should be started immediately
d.  a herpetic dendrite and the patient should be started on topical antivirals

For answers to the above, click here on or after October 24, 2006.
