A 65-year-old male with uncontrolled diabetes, received posterior subtenon triamcinolone (PST) injection in the right eye for diabetic macular edema. Two days following PST, he developed scleral abscess at the injection site. The Gram stain showed Gram positive cocci in clusters. He responded favorably with systemic control of diabetes, topical concentrated cefazolin, concentrated tobramycin, and intravenous antibiotics. Possibility of infective complications should be considered when using periocular steroids, especially in diabetics. Strict control of diabetes and aggressive systemic antibiotics favor rapid healing in such cases.
