Abstract Paecilomyces lilacinus is a rare cause of endophthalmitis and there are few reports of it in the literature. Herein we report a patient with P. lilacinus endophthalmitis who was treated with the new triazole, voriconazole, for 4 months, with a good clinical evolution. This treatment appears to be a valuable new therapeutic option but requires further clinical confirmation.
