To highlight the graveness of invasive Aspergillus infections that could end in serious complications in immunocompromised patients, we are going to report a rare case of bilateral Aspergillus endophthalmitis in a lymphoma patient. We present a case in an academic referring hospital. The patient was an immunocompromised patient with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma complicated with vision loss due to Aspergillus infection diagnosed with B-mode ultrasound and culture and followed by treatment with vitrectomy and intravitreous amphotericin. The patient was followed for 9 months, culminating in visual acuity of 4/100 and 1/100 in her left and right eye, respectively. Despite appropriate diagnosis and treatment, invasive Aspergillus infection may still have a poor prognosis.
