SYNOPSIS

Treatment of acute endophthalmitis includes intravitreal injection of antibiotics, and pars plana vitrectomy. The surgery is looked at from several angles: removal of inflammatory debris or membranes in the anterior segment, obtaining intraocular specimens sampling, different modes of visualization of the fundus during surgery. After presenting the surgery context, this film presents reports of five cases, including endoph-thalmitis associated with intraocular foreign bodies, or dislocated lens.
