Diagnosis of acanthamoeba keratitis is often a clinical challenge. In most cases it is primarily confused with herpes keratitis. A coinfection with bacteria or fungi can also lead to a delayed diagnosis and initiation of treatment. A few cases reported the detection of acanthamoeba in the anterior chamber. In the case of endophthalmitis without the detection of bacteria or fungi acanthamoeba should therefore always be considered as a potential differential diagnosis. The local and systemic administration of voriconazole can be successfully used to treat acanthamoeba endophthalmitis.
