ABSTRACT: Propionibacterium acnes, an anaerobe of low virulence has been associated with serious infections. We report herein a case of bacteraemia with P.acnes in a leukaemic patient presenting with sudden loss of vision due to central retinal vein occlusion. The ophthalmic complications of P.acnes infection in immunocompromised patients should not be overlooked.
