MUNOZ MORENTE, A.; BARON RAMOS, M. A.; MATEOS FERNANDEZ, S. y REGUERA IGLESIAS, J. M.. Endogenous bacterial endophthalmitis: a case report and brief review. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2004, vol.21, n.12, pp.31-32. ISSN 0212-7199.
The bacterial endogenous endophthalmitis is a slightly frequent pathology with a poor visual prognosis that needs a precocious diagnosis and treatment. We present the case of a diabetic patient who presented a Escherichia coli bacteremia of urinary origin, with endogenous endophthalmitis, meningitis and spondylitis. She was treated with intravenous and topic antibiotics, obtaining a cessation in the progression of the disease and preserving the capacity for luminous perception in the eye.
