Abstract

A 12-year-old white boy had superficial keratitis as a result of an insect egg from Hemiptera which became embedded in the cornea. The foreign body was removed, and after five months, the patient's vision was 20 20. The inflammation was probably an allergic response to the outer chitinous layer of the insect egg.
