Resumen

MAURI GARRIDO, Omar et al. Sphingomonas paucimobilis-induced endophthalmitis after cataract surgery. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.2, pp.294-300. ISSN 0864-2176.

The characterization and therapeutic management of a case of postsurgery bacterial endophthalmitis caused by Shingomonas paucimobilis was presented. Endophthalmitis is the inflammation of the intraocular tissues and considered as the most devastating postoperative complication. The visual prognosis of this disease is very reserved judgement and high risk of sequelae. Sphingomonas paucimobilis are bacillus-shaped, chemoheterotrophic and strictly aerobic Gramnegative bacteria that cause diseases in the human being, mainly nosocomial infections that are typically treated with antibiotics. Based on its biodegrading and biosynthetic capacities, there are few reports on intraocular infections caused by this germ. The visual prognosis is favourable when the disease is early diagnosed and adequately managed. A case of endophthalmitis following a cataract surgery and caused by Shingomonas paucimobilis in Cuba in September 2009 was presented in this article.

Palabras clave : Sphingomonas paucimobilis; endophthalmitis; phacoemulsification; intravitreous; pars plana vitrectomy.
