We describe a case of bacterial endophthalmitis complicating routine cataract extraction and intraocular lens implantation in a 97‐year‐old woman. The ocular and systemic factors that may have predisposed to intraocular infection in this case, and the possibility of predicting these pre‐operatively, are discussed.
