Abstract

A case of bacterial endophthalmitis secondary to a penetrating injury was successfully treated with intracameral topical and subconjunctival injections of gentamicin. After treatment the patient had normal vision and there was no evidence of toxic side-effects on the anterior segment of the eye including the endothelium, angle structures, and lens. The potential pathogenicity of Staphylococcus epidermidis is again emphasized. We are grateful to Miss Eleonore Shweiry for her secretarial assistance.
