Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The role of other non-perfringens Clostridium species in endophthalmitis infections has not been analyzed. We describe a case of non-perfringens Clostridium endophthalmitis and review prior cases in the literature. Fulminant clinical presentations and poor visual outcomes are the rule, but a combined aggressive medical and surgical approach may conserve vision.
