• Keratomycosis often follows ocular trauma caused by vegetable matter. Medical management sometimes is unsuccessful, and surgical intervention is required.

Three case reports illustrate the usefulness of lamellar keratoplasty and conjunctival flaps in the management of peripheral corneal fungal ulcers.
