    Abstract

    A case of bacterial endophthalmitis secondary to a penetrating injury was successfully treated with intracameral topical and subconjunctival injections of gentamicin. After treatment the patient had normal vision and there was no evidence of toxic side-effects on the anterior segment of the eye including the endothelium, angle structures, and lens. The potential pathogenicity of Staphylococcus epidermidis is again emphasized.
