HSV Dendritic Ulcer (Photo)


This photo shows the classic dendritic ulcer that you see on the cornea of the eye with herpetic keratitis. The ulcer has branching, bulbous extensions and as you can see here, lights up with fleuroscein.

To get a better view of this ulcer, check out our HSV cornea video (from which this snapshot was taken). The video is very short and a little jerky though as it was taken at the microscope in a small child.

My name is Dr. Jain and I wanted to know whether I would be able to reprint the dendritic corneal ulcer picture on the rootatlas.com website for a dermatology review book I am working on. I’m not sure if the resolution is high enough, but I wanted to ask permission for reprint anyway. Please let me know. My email address is jainsima@yahoo.com. Thank you.
