We present a case of bilateral choroidal abscesses due to a multidrug-resistant gram negative (4MRGN) Pseudomonas aeruginosa lung colonization in a patient with cystic fibrosis under immunosuppression after lung transplantation. Bilateral choroidal and subretinal abscesses were detected by funduscopy, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and phacovitrectomy and were accompanied by bilateral acute vision loss. The diagnosis was confirmed by intraoperative subretinal biopsy. Due to therapy resistance a bilateral enucleation for life-saving purposes was performed.
