Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP) is a gram-negative bacterium incriminated in nasocomial infections and has been reported to cause serious infections such as liver abscesses and metastatic endophtalmitis. We report a KP septic case which complicated by an early endophthalmitis, corneal perforation and crystalline lens externalization in a 60-year-old man. Endogenous KP infection, although rare, might cause an early endophthalmitis leading to corneal perforation and prolapsus of intraocular contents.
