Slit lamp microscopy of the left eye with right down gazing at the first examination (a) shows ciliary injection and a subtenon abscess in the superotemporal quadrant where the posterior STTA injection had been previously performed. The content of the subtenon abscess smear was Gram-stained and observed by light microscopy (b). A large amount of round or oval conidia-like structures and polymorphonuclear leukocytes were observed. A scleral specimen obtained by surgical debridement was histologically examined using Grocott staining (c). Branching hyphae stained with black were observed. A slit lamp microscope of the same view at the final examination shows that the subtenon abscess and ciliary injection were absent (d)
