Abstract:

Fungal endophthalmitis is a destructive intraocular infection resulting in poor visual prognosis. Endophthalmitis due to Fusarium spp has the worst visual prognosis. We report a case of a 58-year-old female patient who underwent cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation in the right eye and presented two months after the surgery with fungal endophthalmitis. The aqueous humor culture grew Fusarium dimerum. The patient was treated with intravitreal and oral voriconazole and topical prednisolone. The patient experienced one episode of recurrence following by remarkable improvement. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of Fusarium dimerum endophthalmitis.
