We report a case of keratomycosis by Aspergillus flavus with superadded bacterial infection by Pseudomonas aeruginosa. An 83 years old male patient was referred to our institute with pain and copious mucopurulent discharge from the left eye of 15 days duration. Clinically, the case was diagnosed as keratomycosis. Gram stain showed Gram variable fungal elements and Gram negative bacteria, while the potassium hydroxide preparation showed branching septate hyphae.
