Abstract

Certain aspects of the pathogenesis of herpetic keratitis, and the implications for therapy, by classifying the physical signs into those due to primary viral damage associated with viral replication, those due to ensuing inflammation, those due to collagen necrosis and stromal lysis, and those due to residual sequelae of earlier disease, and by discussing the significance for therapy of each of these classes of signs. Finally, the authors classify the therapeutic agents potentially available for treating herpetic keratitis and summarize the therapeutic objectives in herpetic keratitis.
