  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Two patients, a 72-year-old male and a 45-year-old female, developed rhegmatogenous retinal detachment secondary to endogenous fungal endophthalmitis. The first case had been treated by intravenous hyperalimentation after surgery for ileus, cholelithiasis and cholecystitis. The second case had been treated by systemic corticosteroid and intravenous hyperalimentation for Sjögren syndrome, renal diabetes in-sipidus, distal tubular acidosis and acute pancreatitis. Retinal detachment was achieved in both cases by systemic antifungal agent and surgery. The present cases illustrate that rhegmatogenous retinal detachment may be caused by fungal endophthalmitis and that it responds favorably to treatment.
