Endophthalmitis, a potentially devastating inflammatory condition of the vitreous and anterior chamber, can be either noninfectious or infectious. Infectious endophthalmitis is classified as exogenous or endogenous. Exogenous endophthalmitis occurs secondary to a violation of the eye wall as a result of ocular surgery or trauma, with subsequent intraocular microbial inoculation. Endogenous endophthalmitis, which is less frequent, occurs via the hematogenous spread of microorganisms to the eye from a systemic infection, often in immunocompromised patients. Common infectious foci include meningitis, endocarditis, indwelling catheters and skin wounds. A 56-year-old male presented with a 2-day history of new floaters in the right eye. Ocular history was significant for surgical repair of a complex rhegmatogenous retinal detachment of the left eye, leading to a blind, painful eye, for which he underwent evisceration 6 weeks prior to developing floaters in his right eye. The systemic review revealed a 1-week history of a flulike illness, with fever, shortness of breath, diffuse myalgia and arthralgia.
