Our of 688 eyes with perforating injuries in 16 cases (2.33%) which were operated on in the years 1973 to 1979, a serious intraocular infection occurred. In 8.94% of the cases in which there were foreign bodies, and in 0.88% of the remaining cases, without intraocular foreign bodies, infection also occurred, although antibiotics were administered prophylactically. With intensive combined antibiotic therapy, and by performing vitrectomy as early as possible it is sometimes possible to save the bulb, and in some cases useful residual function can be achieved. The success of early results of vitrectomy in endophthalmitis recorded in the literature to date could not be obtained as late results in our cases.
