A 10-month-old boy with a severe case of measles (including pneumonia, high fever, respiratory distress and signs of measles encephalopathy) developed bilateral corneal ulcers. Laboratory tests showed that the ulcers were caused by herpes simplex virus. The ulcers healed after mechanical debridement and treatment with topical antibiotics and patching.
