We describe 12 patients with endogenous endophthalmitis caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae seen between 1983 and 1988. Three patients had bilateral involvement. Eleven patients had diabetes mellitus, either newly diagnosed or poorly controlled. In six cases the infection was associated with a liver abscess. In all eyes the outcome was light perception or worse; nine eyes had no light perception. Six eyes were enucleated or eviscerated.
