ABSTRACT

Endogenous Endophthalmitis (EE) is a rare cause of blindness in the pediatric age group and this may account for the paucity of management guidelines in the literature. In this report, we describe our experience with a 10-year-old immunocompetent female who developed EE and became blind because of rapidly progressive and destructive inflammatory changes in her eye in spite of seemingly timely treatment.
