Abstract

A diabetic man was found to have endogenous endophthalmitis associated with a bilobar prostatic abscess. Initially, anterior uveitis had been diagnosed, which delayed definitive diagnosis and therapy. After the correct diagnosis, the patient was successfully treated with vitrectomy as well as intravitreal, topical, and systemic antibiotics. Endogenous endophthalmitis should always be considered early in the differential diagnosis of anterior uveitis.
