Toxoplasmosis Retinochoroiditis - Case of Reactivation

In most cases, toxoplasmosis retinochoroiditis represents a reactivation of disease as shown in this case. The yellow arrow denotes an old chorioretinal scar from a previous episode of retinochoroiditis. Now there is a reactivation at the border of the scar. The active retinitis is white and has fuzzy margins. There are inflammatory cells in the overlying vitreous humor making the view slightly blurry. The black arrow denotes the active area of retinitis.
