The Beauveria species, well-known insect pathogens, have been used for biological insecticides. They were increasingly reported to cause human infections in worldwide, such as mycotic keratitis, disseminated infection in a patient with acute leukemia, and deep tissue infection. We introduce here a case of keratoscleritis due to the Beauveria bassiana in an immunocompromised patient with underlying adrenal insufficiency, degenerative arthiritis, and hypertension, initially not suspected by SDA and LPCB stain and revealed by PCR and 18S rDNA sequencing as the Beauveria species
Key Words: Beauveria, Keratoscleritis, 18S rDNA sequencing
