Candida tropicalis endophthalmitis following penetrating keratoplasty


, : Candida tropicalis endophthalmitis following penetrating keratoplasty. British Journal of Ophthalmology 75(9): 565-565

A case of Candida tropicalis endophthalmitis following penetrating keratoplasty is presented. The donor was an alcoholic, who died of bronchopneumonia and pancreatitis. We presume the candida infection was transmitted by the donor because Candida tropicalis was cultured in life from the donor's throat swab and corresponding fungal elements were discovered post mortem in kidney sections of the donor.
