A primate eye affected by postoperative infectious endophthalmitis was studied early in the course of the disease. Retinal perivasculitis, vitreoretinal adhesions along the inflamed vessels, and traction of the partially separated posterior vitreous on the retinal at the adhesion sites were observed. It is suggested that such vitreoretinal junction pathology may be responsible for the development of retinal detachment in infectious endophthalmitis.
