Glaucoma drainage devices (GDD) play important role in the management of intractable glaucoma. Endophthalmitis in such cases though is a rare occurrence, could still be a vision threatening complication. We report a case of patient with refractory glaucoma who was managed with GDD implantation presenting with delayed endophthalmitis. Here, we discuss the approach to the diagnosis and modalities of intervention keeping the GDD in situ as removing the GDD can jeopardize the intraocular pressure control in such a case of advanced glaucoma.
