Keratomycosis is defined as invasive infection of corneal stroma caused by variety of fungi. Most of these cases occur in agricultural workers with history of corneal trauma with vegetative matter contaminated by fungi. Fusarium species which causes keratomycosis receives occasional mention in literature. We report a case of a 27-year-old male, farmer by occupation presented with complains of foreign body sensation, itching and discharge from the right eye and developed white patch on cornea which was progressed gradually to size of diameter of pea which was later diagnosed as keratitis caused by Fusarium species.
