Endophthalmitis

Abstract
Endophthalmitis is defined as an inflammation of inner coats of the eye, resulting from intraocular colonization of infectious agents with exudation within intraocular fluids (vitreous and aqueous).[1] Based on the mode of entry of the organism, it is divided into 'exogenous' and 'endogenous.' Depending on the causative event, the exogenous endophthalmitis can be either post-traumatic or postoperative.[2] Some of the definitions used in endophthalmitis are listed in figure 1 (classification of endophthalmitis). Unless diagnosed and treated promptly, acute endophthalmitis can lead to severe vision loss. The category or type of endophthalmitis such as postoperative, post-traumatic or endogenous, and others influence the clinical presentation, microbiology, and visual outcome. Endophthalmitis is one of the most serious ophthalmic emergencies which require urgent medical attention and treatment to save the vision or to salvage the integrity of the eye.
