Corneal wound infection following cataract surgery is rare. We describe a case of wound infection at both the main wound and the side port wound following uncomplicated phacoemulsification. Candida albicans was isolated, and the condition worsened with progression to endophthalmitis. Vitrectomy was done, and the infection was controlled after 3 months of topical and systemic antifungal medications.
