摘要

Candida albicans is the most common pathogen causing intraocular fungal infection. Postpartum endogenous Candida endophthalmitis, however, is extremely rare. We report the case of a 33-year-old postpartum woman who presented with a 5-day history of decreased vision and had a positive blood culture for C. albicans. Fundus examination showed vitreous haze and multiple pre-retinal whitish lesions with indistinct borders. Systemic investigations revealed acute renal failure and cardiomegaly. After treatment with intravenous antifungal therapy, vitrectomy, and intravitreal injection of antimycotics, systemic and intraocular infections were eradicated successfully.
