The Retina Reference

Course of Primary Acquired Toxoplasmosis

Course of Primary Acquired Toxoplasmosis Refer to the Normal Retina fundus photograph for comparison. These are the fundus photographs of a 40-year-old female who experienced blurry vision in her left eye for one week. Her best-corrected vision was 20/20 in both eyes with normal confrontation visual fields. Her exam showed an area of retinitis without an adjacent scar in the inferior macula (blue arrow). Her right eye was normal. Toxoplasma IgG and IgM serologies were drawn and both were positive suggesting primary acquired disease. She was placed on Bactrim-DS twice a day for 6-10 weeks. At her latest follow-up on 2-16-2017, the area of retinitis had evolved to a scar (yellow arrow).
