PURPOSE To determine the type of bacteria and the visual outcome of culture-proven multidrug-resistant bacterial endophthalmitis in patients at a tertiary eye care center in southern India. METHODS This is a retrospective case series in which clinical and microbiologic records of culture-proven bacterial endophthalmitis between January 2000 and December(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to evaluate the microbiological profile and treatment outcomes of vancomycin-resistant Gram-positive bacterial endophthalmitis. Medical records of all patients with Gram-positive bacterial endophthalmitis resistant to vancomycin presenting between 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2010 were reviewed in this(More)
BACKGROUND An observational case series was used to study the virulence characteristics and genotypes of paired Staphylococcus epidermidis isolates cultured from intraocular samples and from periocular environment of patients with postcataract surgery endophthalmitis. METHODS Eight S. epidermidis isolates were obtained from three patients (2 from patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the role of intravitreal triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA) as an adjuvant in the management of acute retinal necrosis (ARN). DESIGN Interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Four eyes of 4 patients diagnosed with ARN were studied. METHODS This pilot case series included 4 patients who presented with clinical features suggestive of(More)
PURPOSE To present the microbial spectrum and susceptibility of isolates in scleral buckle infections in India. DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHOD Seventy-three isolates from 55 eyes with scleral buckle infection were studied. RESULTS The isolates included 30 gram-positive cocci (41.1%), 15 acid-fast bacilli (20.5%), 11 fungi (15.1%), 10(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to evaluate the microbiologic spectrum and antimicrobial susceptibility of isolates in post-traumatic endophthalmitis and compare with our earlier published report. A retrospective review was conducted on 581 consecutive patients with culture-proven post-traumatic endophthalmitis at L. V. Prasad Eye Institute,(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prevalence, antimicrobial susceptibilities, and visual acuity outcome of acute-onset postoperative Gram-negative bacterial endophthalmitis cases resistant to both ceftazidime and amikacin seen between 2005 and 2010 at L. V. Prasad Eye Institute, a tertiary care ophthalmic Centre in South India. Medical(More)
