HSV Dendritic Epithelial Keratitis
- Begins as discrete punctate epithelial keratitis which may then coalesce to form dendritic-shaped lesions.
- May be single or multiple, with typical "terminal bulb" at the tips of dendrite branches.
- Devitalized cells surrounding the edge of the dendritic ulcers best stained with rose bengal.
- Fluorescein dye may pool in the central ulceration of epithelial dendrites
