Description Aims: To describe endophthalmitis profile in a tertiary eye care center.
Study Design: Retrospective study.
Place and Duration of Study: The ophthalmology department of The Mohammed V Military Medical Training Hospital in Rabat, and covering all patients hospitalized for endogenous and exogenous endophthalmitis between January the 1st 2014, and 31 of December 2018.
Methodology: We included 41 eyes from 41 patients with endophthalmitis.
Results: On a total of 41 eyes, mean age was 53,8 years, with a sex ratio of 1,7. Mean time from onset of symptoms to presentation was 8 +/- 4 days (3 to 32) for postoperative endophthalmitis, and 13 +/- 9 days (2 – 30) for other causes. 98% of patients presented decreased vision, and 88% showed ocular pain. 94% of patients had a visual acuity less than hand motion. Gram positive bacteria were isolated in 76% of the patients.
Conclusion: Our epidemiological, clinical and microbial findings are similar to some occidental and other oriental series.
