Abstract

Amphotericin B is the usual treatment for fungal endophthalmitis, but its toxicity and lack of oral bioavailability may limit its use in some patients. The authors report the successful management of two cases of presumed metastatic fungal endophthalmitis with oral fluconazole, a bis- triazole compound with a broad antifungal spectrum.
