Acute keratoconjunctivitis due to contamination of contact lens care solution with histamine-producing Raoultella species: A case report.

Abstract Contact lens storage cases are known to be contaminated by a significant number of bacteria. However, histamine-producing Raoultella species has not been reported to contaminate contact lens storage case.

AB  - RATIONALE: Contact lens storage cases are known to be contaminated by a
      significant number of bacteria. However, histamine-producing Raoultella species
      has not been reported to contaminate contact lens storage case. PATIENT CONCERNS:
      A 27-year-old woman with keratoconjunctivitis that developed in the left eye
      owing to a cosmetic contact lens and poor hygiene was referred to our hospital.
      The corrected visual acuity was hand motion. DIAGNOSES: Corneal infection other
      than Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) and corneal hypoxia were excluded.
      INTERVENTIONS: We initiated empirical therapy for AK, although no cysts or
      trophozoites were detected in the cornea and in the lens care solution. Analysis 
      of 16S rDNA sequences from the lens care solution yielded the highest homology
      with Raoultella species, which are histamine-producing bacteria. Histamine was
      estimated to be 492 ng/mL in the lens care solution. OUTCOMES: Her clinical
      course was distinct from that of usual AK cases. The corrected visual acuity
      increased up to (1.2) only 5 days after initiating empirical therapy. LESSONS: To
      our knowledge, this is the first report to indicate an association between
      histamine-producing bacteria and keratoconjunctivitis. We should pay an attention
      to the microbial contamination of contact lens storage cases by histamine
      producing bacteria.
