Intravitreal corticosteroids as an adjunct in the treatment of bacterial and fungal endophthalmitis. A review


, : Intravitreal corticosteroids as an adjunct in the treatment of bacterial and fungal endophthalmitis. A review. Retina 12(4): 336-340

Clinical and experimental reports suggesting that intravitreal corticosteroid therapy, when used in conjunction with antibiotics with and without vitrectomy, reduces the intraocular inflammatory process and secondary complications associated with bacterial and fungal endophthalmitis are reviewed.
