A child with an extensive periorbital hemangioma developed an endophthalmitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus after her second strabismus surgical procedure. Treatment with vitrectomy and intraocular antibiotics and steroid resulted in preservation of her eye. Despite previous successful treatment for amblyopia in that eye, her visual acuity improved from hand motion during the acute episode of endophthalmitis to 20/40 -2.
