Chronic keratoconjunctivitis with dermatitis as a presenting sign of child abuse. A 13-month-old girl presented with chronic keratoconjunctivitis with dermatitis. She was initially diagnosed with corneal abrasion and mild preseptal cellulitis and was treated with topical and oral antibiotics. After failing to respond to standard therapy, she was eventually identified as a victim of abuse.
