Abstract
Acinetobacter spp. is emerging as a common cause of nosocomial infections. Community acquired ocular infections due to Acinetobacter are rare. Only on e case of perforation of cornea has been reported previously, where old nom enclature was used to describe the causal agent. We report a case of cornea l perforation due to Acinetobacter junii for which a therapeutic penetratin g keratoplasty was conducted and the patient eventually recovered.
