Reactivated Toxoplasmosis Retinochoroiditis with Heavy Inflammation

In this case of reactivated toxoplasmosis retinochoroiditis, the old scar (yellow arrow) is almost hidden by the intensity of the inflammation, which obscures the view through the vitreous. The active area of retinitis (black arrow) is larger than the original scar, providing evidence that this situation has been going on longer than one would like. Patients with toxoplasmosis retinochoroiditis should be told to return for fresh flares of blurred vision, floaters, and light sensitivity. Antibiotic treatment is prolonged in this disease, typically continuing for six weeks and often longer depending on the disease course.
