Abstract

Purpose: To report a series of patients with acute-onset bacterial endophthalmitis caused by culture proven Staphylococcus lugdunensis, and to characterize clinical outcomes and microbiologic susceptibilities of this organism. Observations: The study included six eyes of 6 patients. The etiologies included cataract surgery (3), open globe injury (2), and intravitreal injection (1). Isolates of S. lugdunensis demonstrated sensitivity to vancomycin in all cases reported. Three of 6 isolates of S. lugdunensis demonstrated resistance to oxacillin and 1 isolate demonstrated resistance to ciprofloxacin. Best-corrected visual acuity was ≥20/400 in 6/6 (100%) of eyes and ≥20/40 in 3/6 (50%) of cases. Conclusion and importance: Acute-onset endophthalmitis caused by S. lugdunensis is associated with variable visual outcomes. Vancomycin provides consistent coverage of acute-onset endophthalmitis cause by S. lugdunensis.
