We present a case of a confirmed Candida albicans endogenous endophthalmitis in a 35-year-old diabetic white female patient with a long standing history of severe chronic vaginal C. albicans infection. The patient had recently undergone ureteric stenting and received intravenous broad-spectrum antibiotics for renal stones complicated by urinary sepsis. Pan-fungal polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of vitreous aspirate confirmed the presence of C. albicans. Samples showed no microbial growth.
