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)
The incidence of traumatic endophthalmitis may be decreasing due to earlier wound closure and prompt initiation of antibiotics. Risk factors for endophthalmitis include retained intraocular foreign body, rural setting of injury, disruption of the crystalline lens, and a delay in primary wound closure. The microbiology in the post-traumatic setting includes(More)
PURPOSE To report a large consecutive case series of patients who developed delayed-onset and acute-onset endophthalmitis after cataract surgery. DESIGN Retrospective consecutive case series. METHODS The current study is a retrospective consecutive case series of patients treated between January 2000 and December 2009 for culture-proven endophthalmitis(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the prevalence, causative organisms, and visual acuity outcome in patients with culture-proven polymicrobial endophthalmitis. The method used in this study is the non-comparative, consecutive case series using a retrospective analysis of patients diagnosed with polymicrobial endophthalmitis for the(More)
PURPOSE To report the clinical features, antibiotic susceptibilities and treatment outcomes in patients with endophthalmitis caused by nontuberculous mycobacterium. DESIGN Noncomparative, consecutive case series. METHODS Retrospective chart review between December 1990 and June 2014. RESULTS In the 19 study patients, the clinical setting of(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)
