Abstract

Infectious endophthalmitis is an uncommon but potentially devastating eye disease. Although the presence of a hypopyon is considered one of the hallmark clinical signs of infectious endophthalmitis, hypopyon associated with non-infectious causes may occur. Two patients with hypopyon and pseudoendophthalmitis secondary to chronic vitreous hemorrhage are described. In both cases, the hypopyon improved without the use of intravitreal antibiotics.
