We retrospectively analysed 33 endophthalmitis patients treated at the Faculdade de Medicina de Botucatu. We observed that 81,8% of these patients were males and older than 60 years. Trauma was the main cause of endophthalmitis (42,4%). Endophthalmitis severity can be assessed by the fact there was no improvement on the final visual acuity.
