Abstract

We report the first case of a picturesque exogenous Listeria monocytogenes endophthalmitis in a previously healthy woman after a cow tail’s sweep, successfully treated with surgical and linezolid. We discuss the interest of linezolid, until then never used in this specific infection. The pharmacokinetic properties and the anti-gram positive activity of the linezolid may challenge the requirement for intravenous therapy in gram positive endophthalmitis on long term treatment.
