Endogenous endophthalmitis (EE) is an uncommon but very serious disease; it occurs in only 2-15% of all cases of endophthalmitis, and the average annual incidence is approximately 5 per 10,000 hospitalised patients.However, fungal infections account for the majority of such cases, and Candida albicans is usually the responsible pathogen. Symptoms of endogenous fungal endophthalmitis (EFE) include visual loss, red eye, photophobia and pain, but some patients remain asymptomatic during the initial stage or have a lesion that is in the peripheral retina. Thus, misdiagnosed or missed diagnoses can delay prompt treatment and result in a worse prognosis.
