Corneoscleral tunnel infection is a potentially sight threatening complication of cataract surgery. Microbiological investigations are mandatory and early surgical intervention helps in achieving favourable outcomes.

Prompt surgical intervention and intensive topical therapy helped attain a good tectonic as well as visual recovery.
