Abstract

This study aims to present a case of endogenous endophthalmitis complicating a pulmonary abscess, and to discuss the clinical features of this pathology. Acute endophthalmitis is a pan uveitis most often resulting from bacterial infection; it is termed endogenous when dissemination occurs via the hematogenous way from a septic site. This is a 75-year-old patient with no history of ocular surgery or other endo-ocular procedures or trauma, who presented 2 years ago with a poorly treated pulmonary abscess, and who came to the emergency department with a painful red eye associated with decreased visual acuity in the left eye. Vitrectomy may also be indicated. Given the fragile nature of the patient’s condition, the prognosis is often poor, both anatomically and functionally.
