Toxic anterior segment syndrome (TASS) is characterized by sterile postoperative inflammation of anterior segment after intraocular surgery [1, 2].Although TASS most often occurs after cataract surgery, it has also been reported after keratoplasty and posterior segment surgeries [3,4,5].The inflammation can be mild with a minimal cellular reaction or severe enough to cause marked cornea … Absence of vitreous inflammation is the most significant difference between TASS and endophthalmitis.

Sterile endophthalmitis appears as an infrequent complication of intravitreal injections and seems to develop mainly in the context of the off-label use of drugs that have not been conceived for intravitreous administration. Two cases occurred sequentially in one patient. The aetiology of sterile endophthalmitis, independently of the administered drug, remains uncertain and a multifactorial origin cannot be discarded. Fulminant culture-negative endophthalmitis with a good visual outcome may be due to a sterile toxic insult, a variation of TASS which we call Toxic Posterior Segment Syndrome (TPSS). Poor outcomes like this make infectious endophthalmitis one of the most feared complications of ophthalmic surgery. 5. Most patients with toxic anterior segment syndrome will develop symptoms within 12 to 24 hours of the surgery. More studies are needed to understand the multifactorial risk factors affecting the etiopathogenesis of this syndrome.
