Endocapsular hypopyon: a clinical sign of localized endophthalmitis.
Chronic intraocular infection following cataract extraction and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation has been documented by several authors. We report a case of chronic, bacterial endophthalmitis that clinically correlates with previous pathologic studies in which the focus of infection was sequestered in the capsular sac between the IOL and the posterior lens capsule. Successful management did not require IOL removal.
