Abstract


Endophthalmitis is the intraocular inflammation involving the anterior chamber and vitreous of the eye. It is associated with infectious (bacterial or fungal) or non infectious stimuli including lens toxic material released during the surgery. We report a rare organism for the first time, the isolation of Staphylcoccus warneri from the post-traumatic endophthalmitis case.
