Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Endophthalmitis is most commonly seen in adults shortly after cataract surgery. It is rare in the pediatric population. Presented here is a case of endophthalmitis following strabismus repair in a 9-month-old patient with Trisomy 21. Leukocoria was observed 15 days after surgery, but the child did not exhibit symptoms of infection, and the ordering clinician requested an MRI of the brain and orbits to assess the possibility of retinoblastoma. This case highlights the importance of MRI in the evaluation of leukocoria and displays typical MRI findings of this infrequently-encountered condition in the pediatric population.
