    Abstract

    Metastatic candida endophthalmitis presented as a unilateral panuveitis in an apparently healthy drug addict. Diagnosis was confirmed by vitrectomy. The eye made an excellent response to treatment with the new antifungal drug, ketoconazole, and 5-fluorocytosine. Problems raised in the diagnosis and management of this infection are discussed.
