We report the first case of an ocular fungal infection caused by Candida utilis in a 72-year-old woman. Although candidiasis is the most common opportunistic fungal infection in humans, C. utilis had not been associated with human morbidity until two cases of fungemia were reported in 1988 and 1993. The clinical features exhibited typical feather-like infiltration at the ulceration margin of this case. After treatment with topical fluconazole and amphotericin-B, the ulceration healed within 3 weeks. The patient underwent penetrating keratoplasty and regained useful vision. We concluded that C. utilis is a new corneal pathogen and should be included in the differential list of mycotic keratitis.
