Revisiting systemic treatment of bacterial endophthalmitis: a review of intravitreal penetration of systemic antibiotics.

Clin Microbiol Infect 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Division of Infectious Diseases and Hospital Epidemiology, Departments of Medicine and Clinical Research, University Hospital of Basel and University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland.

Background: Adjunctive systemic antibiotic therapy for treatment of bacterial endophthalmitis is controversial but common practice due to the severity of the disease. In absence of guidance documents, several antibiotic regimens are being used without applying evidence-based prescribing, thus leading to inappropriate treatment of this serious eye condition.

Objectives: To summarize available data on intravitreal penetration of systemically administered antibiotics and to discuss their usefulness from a microbiological and pharmacological point of view. Read More

Subretinal Hypopyon in Presumed Tubercular Uveitis: A Report of Two Cases.

Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol 2018 Jul-Dec;25(3-4):163-166

Department of Ophthalmology, Dr. Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Subretinal hypopyon is an uncommon entity which has been described in ocular infections and inflammations including endophthalmitis, acute retinal necrosis, and sympathetic ophthalmia. The authors report subretinal hypopyon in two cases of presumed tubercular uveitis which responded well to antitubercular therapy (ATT). The first case was a 47-year-old male with bilateral peripapillary chorioretinitis with a subretinal hypopyon. Read More

Toxic Anterior Segment Syndrome: A Review.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 28. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Prism Eye Institute, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Toxic anterior segment syndrome (TASS) is a surgical complication characterized by a non-infectious anterior chamber inflammatory reaction having multiple etiologies. The clinical signs (prominent limbus to limbus corneal edema, anterior chamber inflammation) and symptoms (decreased visual acuity, discomfort) generally occur within the first 12-48 hours after intraocular surgery. Most patients achieve good clinical and visual outcomes when there is a prompt clinical diagnosis and adequate treatment. Read More

Effect of time to primary repair on final visual outcome after open globe injury.

Br J Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 12. Epub 2019 Jan 12.

Academic Unit of Ophthalmology, Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre, City Hospital, Birmingham, UK.

Background/aim: Historic data suggest that open globe injuries should be repaired within 12-24 hours to reduce the risk of endophthalmitis. However, endophthalmitis is uncommon when systemic antibiotic prophylaxis is given. It is not clear whether delayed primary repair impacts visual outcomes in other ways or what is the optimum time to repair. Read More

Diagnosis of Vitreoretinal Aspergillosis with Transvitreal Retinochoroidal Biopsy.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2018 2;2018:8306163. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Ophthalmology, Drexel University College of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Diagnosing culture-proven endophthalmitis is complicated by the insufficient yield of intraocular samples and the variety of etiologies which mimic true endophthalmitis. In cases of impending vision loss where vitreous biopsy cannot provide a definitive diagnosis, transvitreal retinochoroidal biopsy can be an effective next step. Our case is a 48-year-old male with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia that presented with counting fingers vision, redness, and tearing of the left eye. Read More

Intern Med 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Jichi Medical University School of Medicine, Japan.

A 68-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital with right eye pain, a sudden worsening of his eyesight, and a fever. He was diagnosed with endogenous bacterial endophthalmitis due to infectious endocarditis (IE) of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) on the day of admission. He recovered systemically, but his right eye became phthisical only with the administration of antibiotics. Read More

Post-traumatic endophthalmitis prophylaxis with oral ciprofloxacin in comparison to intravenous cephazolin/gentamicin.

J Res Med Sci 2018 28;23:98. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, School of Health, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran.

Background: Although posttraumatic endophthalmitis is an uncommon condition, it causes severe complications, so medical and pharmacological interventions for prevention of endophthalmitis after trauma are a major concern. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and clinical outcome of oral ciprofloxacin versus intravenous cefazolin/gentamicin for the prevention of endophthalmitis after penetrating ocular trauma.

Materials And Methods: This was a retrospective, descriptive single-center study, including all cases of penetrating ocular trauma seen in the Feiz Hospital, a Tertiary Referral Eye Hospital in Isfahan, Iran, between 2011 and 2017. Read More

Acute Onset of Exogenous Endophthalmitis after Dexamethasone Implant Injection Treated without Implant Removal.

Case Rep Ophthalmol Med 2018 18;2018:4614802. Epub 2018 Nov 18.

Ophthalmology Clinic, Medical Retina & Vitreoretinal Surgery Department, Venizeleio Hospital of Crete, Knossos Avenue 44, Heraklion of Crete, Greece.

We present a case of acute endophthalmitis after intravitreal dexamethasone implant injection and discuss the management of this rare and challenging case in which the implant could not be removed. A 50-year-old woman with a history of branch retinal vein occlusion in the right eye was treated with intravitreal dexamethasone implant injection for macular oedema. Four days after injection, the patient was admitted to the department with acute pain, decreased vision, and redness. Read More

Antibiotic susceptibility, cytotoxicity, and protease activity of viridans group streptococci causing endophthalmitis.

PLoS One 2018 21;13(12):e0209849. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Department of Pathology, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, Mississippi, United States of America.

The viridans group streptococci comprise multiple species and have gained more recognition in recent years as common etiologic agents of bacterial endophthalmitis. The purpose of this study was to identify the species of human endophthalmitis isolates of viridans streptococci and to characterize their potential virulence attributes. The species of 22 endophthalmitis strains of viridans streptococci were identified by Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight. Read More
