Chronic Endophthalmitis

FT is an 80-year-old woman who underwent uncomplicated cataract surgery with intraocular lens implantation and had an unremarkable examination on her first postoperative visit. Her uncorrected visual acuity was measured to be 20/200 in the operative eye. She was noted to have 1+ corneal edema and 1 to 2+ cells and flare. She was seen for follow-up in a week with improvement in her vision to 20/60, but there was a persistent lowgrade anterior chamber reaction. The topical steroids were continued and she returned in 2 weeks with vision of 20/70 with 1+ cell and flare in the anterior chamber. A whitish plaque was noted in the periphery of the capsular bag.
