HSV disciform keratitis

Image Comments:

22-year-old male contact lens wearer referred for evaluation of suspected acanthamoeba keratitis. He had focal Descemet's folds directly under the disc-shaped lesion consistent with endotheleitis that resolved with topical steroid treatment. This is is the classic presentation for HSV disciform keratitis.
