Endogenous Klebsiella endophthalmitis: case report.
A case of endogenous Klebsiella pneumoniae endophthalmitis, cryptogenic in origin, is presented. It was treated initially with success, only to recur three months later with loss of the eye. Common sites of Klebsiella infection are reviewed. This organism rapidly destroys retinal photoreceptors. A link between Klebsiella and acute anterior uveitis has been suggested but is not supported by prospective data.
