Background: We report a case of endophthalmitis secondary to a co-infection with Acanthamoeba and Pseudomonas aeruginosa post-cataract surgery in a peripheral hospital in Lebanon. Case Presentation: The patient presented to our department after having a phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation at a peripheral hospital. Case Study: Proper management and interventions were made to salvage the eye. Conclusion: To our knowledge, the literature has no prior cases of endophthalmitis with such a co-infection.
