Staphylococcus aureus endophthalmitis: a case report
The intravitreal injection of
antibiotics remains the mainstay of therapy for postoperative endophthalmitis.
Bacterial resistance, however, is still a pitfall in achieving an adequate
response to treatment. Quinupristin/dalfopristin might be a feasible
therapeutic option in these cases.
A 55-year-old Hispanic man had
endophthalmitis secondary to Staphylococcus aureus in his
right eye and was treated with intravitreal 0.4 mg/0.1 ml
quinupristin/dalfopristin injection. Inflammation and pain remission were
observed at four days after injection. The final best-corrected visual acuity
Although vancomycin remains the
first-line intravitreal antibiotic therapy against infectious endophthalmitis
caused by Gram-positive bacteria, quinupristin/dalfopristin exhibits similar
efficacy and is theoretically more active against vancomycin-resistant strains,
with no apparent retinal toxicity.
