ASENSIO SANCHEZ, VM; PEREZ FLANDEZ, FJ  y  GIL FERNANDEZ, E. Endogenous Serratia marcescens endophthalmitis diagnosis with PCR. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2003, vol.78, n.5, pp.281-283. ISSN 0365-6691.

Purpose/method: We report the case of a 75-year-old man with endogenous endophthalmitis in the left eye. Culture results were negative. PCR for several Gram-negative bacterias genome was performed. Results/conclusions: Polymerase chain reaction showed amplification of Serratia marcescens genome. Our case indicates that PCR can be a valuable tool in the diagnosis of culture negative endophthalmitis.

Palabras clave : Endogenous endophthalmitis; Serratia; PCR.
