The Infectious Disease Society of America recommends that all patients with candidemia undergo a dilated retinal exam to exclude endogenous Candida endophthalmitis. The objective of this project was to determine if there are significant risk factors in candidemic patients for developing endogenous Candida endophthalmitis.
Dr. Jessie Seidelman and team conducted a retrospective study of all candidemic patients at three academic medical centers between 2012 and 2017. The team extracted risk factors for Candida endophthalmitis based on prior literature and compared them between patients with and without endophthalmitis. The team then built a multivariate logistic regression model to assess which ones were significant.
