Two new cases of endogenous nocardial endophthalmitis and the first case of postoperative nocardial infection following cataract extraction are reported. The two patients with endogenous infection (cases 2 and 3) clinically presented a paracentral or central chorioretinitis. One of these patients (case 3) died with disseminated nocardiosis.
