Abstract AIM: The aim of this study was to describe 3 cases of postoperative fungal endophthalmitis successfully treated with anterior chamber washout, pars plana vitrectomy, and intracameral and intravitreal voriconazole injection. RESULTS: Three (3) patients from a single retina center in India developed culture-proven fungal endophthalmitis after cataract surgery in 1 eye. All patients underwent anterior chamber washout, pars plana vitrectomy, and intracameral and intravitreal voriconazole injections intraoperatively. All cases demonstrated substantial improvement in vision and intraocular inflammation after surgery. CONCLUSIONS: The combination of anterior chamber washout, pars plana vitrectomy, and intracameral and intravitreal voriconazole injection is a viable therapeutic option in cases of fungal endophthalmitis.
