We present a case of interstitial keratitis, presumed to be herpetic, with a striking clinical appearance. A 67-year-old woman was initially diagnosed with viral conjunctivitis and ocular hypertension OD with conjunctival injection and elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). She later presented with a ‘spot on my right eye’ and, after referral, was diagnosed with presumed herpetic keratitis. She was treated with oral valacyclovir and topical prednisolone acetate. The cornea improved, leaving radiating lines in the corneal stroma. This case illustrates an unusual appearance of presumed herpetic stromal keratitis.
