A case of Klebsiella pneumoniae endophthalmitis metastasized from prostatitis is reported. A 58-year-old alcoholismic man with diabetic diathesis suffered from endophthalmitis which required enucleation of his left eye, when he interrupted the treatment of prostatitis. Metastatic bacterial endophthalmitis from urinary tract infection is rare.
