(A) A 70-year-old female with diabetes developed endogenous endophthalmitis secondary to Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP) liver abscess. Clinical presentation included typical papillary hypopyon. (B) A 75-year-old diabetic male visited an ophthalmologist before the diagnosis of KP liver abscess. Clinical examination revealed severe panophthalmitis without history of ocular trauma or surgery. The eye was lost despite treatment with systemic and intravitreal antibiotics. (C) A 63-year-old male with hypertension and history of endocarditis and liver abscess treated elsewhere 3 months prior. Ocular examination showed hypopyon, lens opacity, and vitreous opacity. Inf lammation resolved after combined pars plana vitrectomy, extracapsular cataract extraction, and administration of intravitreal antibiotics. (D) A 45-year-old male with poorly controlled diabetes developed bilateral endophthalmitis secondary to KP liver abscess. Endophthalmitis resolved after systemic antibiotics and one treatment with intravitreal ceftazidime. | Sheu S. J. (2017). Endophthalmitis.
