Ocular Infections in Immunocompromised Hosts

Patients on immunosuppressive medication for systemic or ocular inflammatory conditions, or who are immunocompromised due to chemotherapy, AIDS, or other reasons, are at heightened risk of ocular infection and present unique challenges to clinicians. Since infections in immunosuppressed patients may present atypically and potential pathogens are wide-ranging, we in the eyecare community do well to learn from one another’s experiences in order to avoid pitfalls of diagnosis and management specific to this population.
