Presentation

  • It is recommended that patients use the information presented as a part of a broader decision-making process. Please DO NOT STOP MEDICATIONS without first consulting a physician since doing so could be hazardous to your health.[ehealthme.com]
  • Demographics, initial presentation, examination fndings, imaging, cultures, treatments, and shortterm outcomes were reviewed. RESULTS: Eleven eyes of seven patients presented with subretinal abscesses secondary to MRSA endogenous endophthalmitis.[miami.pure.elsevier.com]
  • Case 2 was a 40-year-old man with a history of IV drug use who presented with a subcutaneous abscess and decreased vision OD.[iovs.arvojournals.org]
  • He reported that 5 days before presentation he was having severe diarrhea with fevers and chills. His maximum temperature was 102 F.[healio.com]
  • Case presentation A 30 year old lady presented with features of endogenous endophthalmitis and subretinal abscess. Presenting vision was finger counting close to face.[journalretinavitreous.biomedcentral.com]

Vitreous Floaters
  • VITREOUS FLOATERS Vitreous floaters are by far the most common symptom of abnormal vitreous. A given floater represents the patient's awareness of the shadow of a mobile vitreous opacity cast upon the retina.[oculist.net]

Miosis
  • Situations that prevent normal examination include lid problems (severe edema, partial or total tarsorrhaphy), keratoprosthesis, corneal opacities, hyphema, hypopyon, miosis, pupillary membranes, dense cataracts, or vitreous opacities (hemorrhage, inflammatory[books.google.com]

  • His mother took him to her ophthalmologist who diagnosed iritis and started treatment with topical steroids and cycloplegics. He returned a few days later without improvement in his symptoms.[link.springer.com]
  • Consolidation of abscesses was seen within days of initial treatment. Visual outcomes were contingent on abscess location and time to initial treatment.[miami.pure.elsevier.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis The visual acuity at the time of the diagnosis and the causative agent are most predictive of outcome. Acute postoperative endophthalmitis has a poor prognosis with 55% of eyes managing 6/60 or less.[patient.info]
  • Traditionally, suspected cases of endophthalmitis have been treated with topical and systemic antibiotics; however, the prognosis for visual recovery with this mode of therapy has been poor.[ijo.in]
  • The prognosis of endogenous bacterial endophthalmitis is poor, with only 32% achieving a final visual acuity of counting fingers or better.[healio.com]

  • Even with optimal treatment, vitreous abscess carries a grave prognosis. * If all three coats of the eye as well as the vitreous are involved by an inflammatory process, the condition is known as panophthalmitis.[oculist.net]

Etiology

  • Infectious etiology is the most common and various bacteria and fungi have been isolated as the cause of the endophthalmitis. Other causes include penetrating trauma and retained intraocular foreign bodies.[icd.codes]
  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]
  • PERSISTENT HYPERPLASTIC PRIMARY VITREOUS Etiology:  failure of primary vitreous structure to regress after birth.[slideshare.net]
  • During the work-up of this patient, investigations for bacterial, viral, parasitic, inflammatory, and neoplastic etiologies all came back negative. Only the Beta-D-Glucan assay was positive.[eyerounds.org]
  • Other infectious etiologies included acute retinal necrosis, syphilis, tuberculosis, toxoplasmosis and Lyme disease.[healio.com]
