Microsporidia are obligate intracellular protozoal parasites. They are eukaryotic and spore forming. Increasing interest in this parasite as a pathogen in the ocular tissues in recent times is due to increasing awareness of microsporidia as an ocular pathogen and better methods of identification of the organism. It also can cause intestinal, sinus, pulmonary, muscular and renal diseases, in both immunocompetent and immunosuppressed patients.The ocular manifestations include superficial punctate keratoconjunctivitis, and corneal stromal keratitis.The aim of this review is to focus on the epidemiology, path- ogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and management of ocular microsporidiosis.
