Listeria monocytogenes endophthalmitis occurred in an immunologically competent patient with no identifiable extraocular septic focus. The patient presented with a dark hypopyon and markedly elevated intraocular pressure, and the diagnosis was established by culture and histopathologic examination of ocular fluid. Four of the fourteen reported cases of Listeria monocytogenes endophthalmitis also presented with a dark hypopyon, and all cases had markedly elevated intraocular pressure. The… CONTINUE READING
