A presentation of longstanding toxoplasmosis chorioretinitis.

BACKGROUND: Toxoplasmosis gondii is the most common cause of focal necrotizing retinitis in healthy individuals. This case report describes a presentation of toxoplasmosis chorioretintis and reviews the current management options.

The patient had presumed ocular toxoplasmosis chorioretinitis with secondary granulomatous panuveitis.
