We reviewed 19 cases of delayed-onset pseudophakic endophthalmitis in which diagnostic cultures were performed at one month or more after cataract extraction with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation. We isolated four different organisms in these 19 cases: 12 Propionibacterium species (63%), three Candida parapsilosis (16%), three Staphylococcus(More)
We established growth curves for Propionibacterium acnes isolates recovered from eyes with chronic postoperative endophthalmitis. The growth curve plotted the average of the duplicate bacterial concentration against time. The generation time for P. acnes calculated from the growth curves was approximately 5.1 hours. The growth of P. acnes is slower than(More)
We present two cases of Propionibacterium acnes endophthalmitis that confirm the association of this organism with a delayed onset and chronic and indolent intraocular inflammation following extracapsular cataract extraction with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation. The clinical, microbiologic, and histopathologic features of these cases suggest(More)
Extensive corneal disease secondary to microbial keratitis can result in frank or impending corneal perforation requiring a large penetrating keratoplasty. In an 8-year period, 26 penetrating keratoplasties with recipient beds of > or = 9.5 mm were performed on 22 eyes: 11 for bacterial keratitis, 10 for fungal keratitis, and one for a mixed bacterial and(More)
We treated 13 consecutive patients with culture proven Neisseria gonorrhoeae conjunctivitis with single-dose intramuscular injections of ceftriaxone. Pretreatment conjunctival cultures and Gram stains were obtained from all patients. The patients were admitted for antibiotic administration, a single conjunctival saline lavage, and follow-up conjunctival(More)
Actinomyces species, gram-positive, non-spore-forming anaerobic bacilli were isolated from intraocular fluid obtained from four otherwise healthy patients with a delayed onset of postoperative endophthalmitis. One patient had a mixed anaerobic infection with recovery of both Actinomyces israelii and Propionibacterium acnes. In all four patients, early(More)
We treated two sporadic cases of postoperative endophthalmitis caused by rapidly growing (Runyon's group IV) mycobacteria. Both involved intraocular lenses, one a secondary implant after intracapsular cataract extraction (Mycobacterium chelonae subspecies abscessus) and the other a primary posterior chamber lens implantation after extracapsular cataract(More)
We used a high-magnification shadow photogrammetric system to evaluate corneal buttons trephined from human donor globes. Whole eyes were trephined with one of five instruments: nonguarded blades held by hand or placed on a handle, Barraquer-Mateus motorized trephine, Hessberg-Barron suction trephine, or Hanna microkeratotrephine. Corneoscleral buttons were(More)
PURPOSE Postoperative Propionibacterium endophthalmitis is a condition characterized by exacerbations and remissions that has often been accompanied by recurrence after treatment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of initial therapies in preventing recurrent endophthalmitis and to assess the safety of intraocular lens (IOL) exchange(More)
