Bleb-associated endophthalmitis (BAE) is a rare postoperative complication with a poor visual prognosis that can occur long after surgery. Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA), an increasingly common and resistant infectant, is first reported here to cause BAE. Conventional medications and methods of treatment are currently adequate.
