Abstract

Endophthalmitis is a severe infection produced by the introduction of microorganisms into the eye after penetrating injury, surgery, or hematogenous spread from a distant primary site of infection. The case presented is a 44-year-old man who worked as a machine operator with exposure to substantial metalworking fluid aerosols from a high-speed grinder generating fine particles.
