A male patient underwent an uneventful cataract surgery. He developed fungal postoperative endophthalmitis by Scedosporium apiospermum species. This fungus is a common cause of endogenous endophthalmitis in immunocompromised patients with poor visual outcomes. We report this case to share our experience of managing fulminant postoperative endophthalmitis with an iris fungal ball in an immunocompetent patient caused by S. apiospermum.
