We describe results of intravitreal moxifloxacin in a case of acute post traumatic endophthalmitis & cataract developed after sustaining a penetrating ocular injury. Management included topical and intravitreal moxifloxacin. The intravitreal injection was given at the time of presentation and then was repeated after 48 hours when lens aspiration and anterior vitrectomy was performed. The patient showed a rapid recovery, and achieved 6/6 vision following surgery. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of therapeutic use of intravitreal moxifloxacin in a human case of acute post traumatic endophthalmitis. Presentation of Case: We report a case of a twenty one year old male referred to us with two days history of penetrating injury in left eye due to a piece of metallic wire. After five days of hospitalization, he was discharged with 6/6 partial best corrected vision. Consent: The patient and his family have given informed consent for the publication of this case report.
