Abstract

We reviewed 19 eyes of 14 cases of fungal endophthalmitis during the past 12 years. It occured after intravenous hyperalimentation (IVH) in 12 cases. All cases were treated by systemic antifungal agents. Vitreous surgery became necessary in 10 eyes, of which visual acuity improved by 2 lines or more in 9 eyes. Poor visual acuity was the rule in cases with macular involvement. The findings show the importance of early detection and treatment of fungal endophthalmitis.
