This is a report of an unusual case of Bipolaris mycotic keratitis infecting the corneas of both eyes in a cured, immunocompetent patient with previous borderline lepromatous disease. Bipolaris keratomycosis is probably more common than is generally appreciated, and is probably often overlooked in patients with Hansen's Disease.
