Mycotic keratitis has emerged as a major ophthalmic problem. Fungal keratitis is usually caused by Aspergillus, Fusarium, Curvularia and Candida species. But one should be aware of other rare environmental pathogens causing keratitis. We report here two cases of corneal ulcer caused by plant pathogens Colletotrichum truncatum and Colletotrichum gloeosporioides following injury. Both the cases were treated successfully with voriconazole and natamycin.
