Endogenous fungal endophthalmitis (EFE) rarely occurs after surgery. The lack of clinical suspicion and the empiric use of corticosteroids without antifungal coverage increases the risk of visual loss. We report a rare case of EFE secondary to digestive surgery. Blood cultures were negative. Fungal cultures of the vitreous puncture revealed Candida glabrata. The patient was successfully treated with oral and intravitreal voriconazole injections without vitrectomy.
