In the paper by Velez-Montoya et al. [1], the authors reported the first description of a case of intraocular infection in humans caused by an antibiotic-resistant strain of Streptococcus uberis. We would like to point out that the absence of any description of the method used for bacteria identification in this paper raises some concerns related to the possibility of a misidentification of this bacterium as a pathogen affecting the human eye.

Abstract

In the paper by Velez-Montoya et al. [1], the authors reported the first description of a case of intraocular infection in humans caused by an antibiotic-resistant strain of Streptococcus uberis. We would like to point out that the absence of any description of the method used for bacteria identification in this paper raises some concerns related to the possibility of a misidentification of this bacterium as a pathogen affecting the human eye.
