ABSTRACT:
A case is reported of exogenous Candida endophthalmitis after ocular injury with a metal wire used for hop growing. A detailed description of treatment with vitrectomy and intravitreal amphotericin B injection is presented. On the basis of our experience, in such cases it is advisable to perform vitrectomy with amphotericin B intravitreal injection and silicone oil tamponade to prevent retinal detachment.
