Abstract
A 74-year-old man presented with light perception and presumed early bacterial endophthalma's in the left eye after cataract surgery Vitreous tap biopsy and core vitrectomy were performed immediately, along with injection of antibiotic agents (ceftazidime and vancomycin) Culture of the vitreous tap revealed Pseudomonas aerugmosa sensitive to ceftazidime. The eye remained inflamed despite 2 additional intravitreal ceftazidime injections. Orbital cellulitis with perforation of the globe was suspected and confirmed on magnetic resonance imaging, and enucleation was performed Endophthalmitis due to P aerugmosa is associated with poor visual outcomes despite prompt treatment with appropriate intravitreal antibiotic agents Progression to orbital cellulitis in immunocompetent patients is extremely rare Careful monitoring of patients with endophthalmitis after cataract surgery is recommended
