Pseudomonas aeruginosa eye infection, although uncommon, may be a devastating disease if not recognised and treated appropriately, especially in premature infants. The case is presented of a premature baby who lost her right eye from invasive exogenous Ps aeruginosa eye infection.

    Pseudomonas aeruginosa produces several lectins, including the galactophilic PA-IL and the fucose- and mannose-binding PA-IIL. The great advantage of these two lectins is their stability in purified preparations. Following observations that pigeon egg white blocks Escherichia coli P-fimbriae and...
