Clinical findings in 5 cases of active ocular toxoplasmosis were documented by fluorescein angiography. The diagnosis was based upon the ophthalmoscopic findings of white, fluffy, retinal exudative lesions with or without overlying vitreous inflammatory cells, and positive serologic tests for toxoplasma and responsiveness to clindamycin therapy. Three cases were considered as recurrent ocular toxoplasmosis and the other 2 cases, acquired ocular toxoplasmosis. Angiographic characteristics of… Expand
Multimodal Imaging in Ocular Toxoplasmosis
Multimodal imaging is helpful to characterize the typical pattern of toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis, with primary focal inflammatory involvement of the neurosensory retina, and secondary changes at the level of underlying choroid, retinal blood vessels, vitreous and even optic disc. Expand
Branch retinal arterial occlusion associated with toxoplasmic chorioretinitis
Especially in young patients with branch retinal vascular occlusion associated with posterior uveitis, the diagnosis of ocular toxoplasmosis should be kept in mind and serologic test results should be obtained. Expand
Branch Retinal Artery Occlusion Caused by Toxoplasmosis in an Adolescent
The diagnosis of ocular toxoplasmosis should be considered in young patients with retinal artery occlusions associated with inflammation, as this is the third case report of a BRAO in a patient in the pediatric population. Expand
Imaging in Uveitis
The most commonly used ancillary investigations in uveitis include laser flare meter for anterior segment inflammation, ultrasound biomicroscopy for ciliary body region, fundus photography and fundus fluorescein angiography for retinal diseases, indocyanine green angiographers for choroidal pathologies, and optical coherence tomography as well as ultrasonography for posterior segment.

Edema macular quístico por toxoplasma gondii Cystoid macular edema by toxoplasma gondii
A case of a 17 years old woman that were visited by urgency because of an ocular pain and sudden visual loss (VA) on right eye 4 days ago and revealed a foveal detachment of neurosensorial retina with late hyperfluorescence is studied. Expand
Recurrent ocular disease in congenital toxoplasmosis: clinical manifestations
It is demonstrated that congenitally infected children, including those with subclinical infections without any signs and symptoms of the disease at birth, regularly develop late ocular involvement, even after an interval of many years (most typically during the teenage years and young adulthood).

Retinal imaging in uveitis.
Ancillary investigations are the backbone of uveitis workup for posterior segment inflammations. They help in establishing the differential diagnosis and making certain diagnosis by ruling outExpand
Immunopathogenesis of toxoplasmosis
This review focuses on the immunopathogenesis of toxoplasmosis with emphasis on the eye problem due to its morbidity, and reflects the variability of antiparasitic therapy that include folate antagonists, macrolides, hydroxy naphthoquindones and fluoroquinolones. Expand
Ancillary investigations in uveitis
Ancillary investigations are the backbone of uveitis work-up both for anterior and posterior segment diseases. They help in making the diagnosis, ruling out certain differential diagnosis andExpand
