Post-traumatic endophthalmitis involves infection of the anterior and posterior segments of the eye after a traumatic open globe injury.
It is a devastating complication of ocular trauma and accounts for one-third of all infectious endophthalmitis cases irrespective of the cause. Infection is reported in approximately 1-3 in 100 cases of penetrating eye injuries. The infection rate is higher in presence of intraocular foreign bodies (IOFBs) or if the wound is contaminated with organic matter.
