Dr Scott and her colleagues from the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute recently reviewed the features of Mycobacterium chelonae endophthalmitis.1 Some patients had capsular opacification and, despite therapy, remained with poor vision. I treated a patient with this infection who had similar findings and outcome, which suggests a need for further treatment improvements.
