Abstract

Endophthalmitis is an inflammation of both the anterior and posterior chamber. It is diagnosed clinically and involvement of retina and choroid has been documented. (1) Endophthalmitis is classified into infectious and no-infectious categories. Furthermore, the infectious categoery is classified into endogenous and exogenous (Postoperative, Posttraumatic, Bleb associated) which can be caused by either bacterial or fungal infection. Blurry of vision and pain are main symptoms and coagulase negative organisms (gram positive) are main causative of exogenous endophthalmitis. (2) We report a rare case of delayed-onset postoperative endophthalmitis secondary to a rare causative pathogen.
