AbstractKocuria is an anaerobic, Gram-positive bacterium, which has been rarely reported to cause endophthalmitis following cataract surgery, intravitreal injections, penetrating ocular trauma, and also secondary to endogenous sources. Visual prognosis is often guarded, with no previous cases reporting a final visual acuity better than 20/60. We describe a young female patient who developed culture-proven Kocuria kristinae endophthalmitis associated with a traumatic scleral rupture. Visual acuity at 2 months of follow-up improved from light perception to 20/50 after treatment with intravitreal antimicrobial therapy and pars plana vitrectomy.
