摘要

Endophthalmitis is a well-recognized complication of intraocular surgery, penetrating ocular trauma and systemic infection. Metastatic bacterial endophthalmitis is rare. However, once it happens, the visual outcome is very poor. In order to prevent visual damage, early diagnosis and treatment is essential. Due to the blood-ocular barrier, intravitreal drug concentrations are low after systemic administration. Strong antibiotics with good penetration into the vitrous humor are needed to obtain adequate bactericidal concentrations. We report two cases with liver abscess complicated by septic events to the eye. One was uveitis, and the other was endophthalmitis. They were diagnosed early and were successfully treated with parenteral ceftriaxone and good vision was preserved.
