A 12-year-old boy presented with trauma to left eye with a wooden stick. On examination, there was full thickness corneal laceration with cataractous lens behind the laceration. The laceration was sutured, and intravitreal injections of vancomycin, ceftazidime and clindamycin were administered. Vitreous tap grew Streptococcus parauberis. The isolate was sensitive to amoxicillin, erythromycin and vancomycin, and topical vancomycin was used to treat the infection. We present the first case of human post-traumatic infective endophthalmitis caused by the rare agent S. parauberis.
