Infection caused by the larvae of Toxocara canis is a well established cause of intraocular inflammation. This frequently occurs in children and young adults. There are three recognised forms, diffuse panuveitis, a focal posterior retinal granuloma, or peripheral inflammatory mass. The peripheral inflammatory mass is often associated with vitreous bands, which may cause traction on the retina or optic disc.'-5
