SD-OCT Features of Acute Post-cataract Surgery Endophthalmitis Caused by Pseudomonas Aeruginosa A Pictorial Essay by Ei Tae Kim, South Korea


ABSTRACT

This case demonstrates a postoperative endophthalmitis after uneventful phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. We performed repeated vitrectomy, intravitreal antibiotics injection and recorded the clinical course with SD-OCT and wide fundus photograph. Patient recovered visual acuity to 20/80. The serial SD-OCT showed

1) decreasing retinal infiltration and inflammatory preretinal membrane,

2) decreased inner retinal thickening,

3) RPE layer change and photoreceptor disruption.

Early and repeated vitrectom y with intravitreal injection had contributed to the favorable outcome. SD-OCT findings indicated acute pseudomonas inflammation can cause inner retinal damage but outer retinal damage also, however it can be recovered with appropriate treatment.
