Bacterial or sterile endophthalmitis was induced in rabbits. The vitreous glucose levels were then assayed. Severe intraocular inflammation, whether bacterial or sterile, resulted in marked lowering of vitreous glucose as compared to control levels. Moderate or mild inflammation failed to reduce the vitreous glucose. These data suggest that determination of vitreous glucose is not of value in the differentiation of bacterial from sterile endophthalmitis.
