Abstract: Purpose: the aim of this study was to report a case of a 52-year-old man with a rare fungal endophthalmitis after penetrating ocular trauma with a fish hook.Results: the patient was submitted to wound repair and hook extraction. Three weeks after the trauma, a cataract extraction with phacoemulsification and in-the-bag intraocular lens implantation was performed. After the development of endophthalmitis, vitrectomy and lens explantation with positive culture for Curvularia lunata were carried out. the infection was controlled with the administration of systemic itraconazole and intraocular voriconazole.Conclusions: the use of intravitreal voriconazole injection is a viable option in cases of Curvularia fungal endophthalmitis.
