Abstract

PURPOSE: To describe a 29-year-old man presenting with acuteonset endophthalmitis caused by Rhizobium (formerly Agrobacterium) radiobacter after uneventful implantable collamer lens implantation for myopia. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: The patient was treated with intravitreal injections of vancomycin and ceftazidime, as well as topical and systemic antibiotics. The patient had a good response with a final visual acuity of 20/50 at the last follow-up visit 25 months postoperatively. CONCLUSIONS: This case represents the first case report of endophthalmitis caused by Rhizobium radiobacter following implantable collamer lens implantation.
