  • Endophthalmitis caused by Acinetobacter Calcoaceticus. A profile.
    Indian journal of ophthalmology, 2003
    Co-Authors: Lingam Gopal, Rajani Battu, Anand A Ramaswamy, Hajib N. Madhavan, Tarun Sharma, Mahesh P Shanmugam, Pramod Bhende, Muna Bhende, Dhanashree Ratra, Nitin S Shetty
    Abstract:

    Purpose: To report the clinical and microbiological profile of endophthalmitis caused by Acinetobacter Calcoaceticus . Methods: A retrospective study of case series of Acinetobacter Calcoaceticus endophthalmitis. Outcome measures included ability to sterilise the eye, anatomical result (clear media and attached retina) and visual recovery (visual acuity > 6/60). Results: Of the 20 cases studied, 10 were cases of postoperative endophthalmitis, 3 were posttraumatic, 6 were endogenous and one was bleb-related endophthalmitis. Specific features of interest observed were relative chronicity of presentation and absence of any obvious predisposing factor in endogenous endophthalmitis cases. All cases could be sterilised except one, which needed evisceration. Cases with postoperative endophthalmitis had better anatomical outcome (7/10 with attached retina and clear media) and visual outcome (4/10 regained vision > 6/18). Higher smear positivity was seen in vitreous samples (72.2%) compared to aqueous samples (37.5%). Culture positivity was higher from the vitreous cavity compared to aqueous. The organism was sensitive to ciprofloxacin in a high percentage (88.9%) of cases. Conclusions: Visual recovery in Acinetobacter Calcoaceticus endophthalmitis is modest. Ciprofloxacin is the antibiotic of choice

  • Postoperative endophthalmitis caused by sequestered Acinetobacter Calcoaceticus
    American Journal of Ophthalmology, 2000
    Co-Authors: Lingam Gopal, Anand A Ramaswamy, Hajib N. Madhavan, Manoj Saswade, Rajani Battu
    Abstract:

    PURPOSE: To describe postoperative endophthalmitis caused by sequestered Acinetobacter Calcoaceticus. METHOD: Case report. A 40-year-old woman developed recurrence of inflammation after extracapsular cataract extraction with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. At last recurrence, the capsular bag was studded with white deposits. Intraocular lens was removed along with capsular bag during pars plana vitrectomy. RESULTS: The capsular bag, when cultured, grew A Calcoaceticus. The media remained clear with no evidence of recurrence of infection over a 3-month follow-up. CONCLUSION: Postoperative endophthalmitis similar to that caused by sequestered Propionibacterium acnes can be caused by A Calcoaceticus.
