Die primäre Infektion während der Schwangerschaft kann zur kongenitalen Infektion führen. Die okuläre Toxoplasmose ist bei immunkompetenten Patienten die häufigste Ursache einer… Expand
Adjunctive bradyzoite-directed therapy for reducing complications of congenital toxoplasmosis.
Very limited observational data in humans suggests atovaquone may prevent Toxoplasma-associated chorioretinitis recurrence, and it is hypothesized that adjunctive, bradyzoite-directed therapies have the potential to alleviate a significant burden of disease by reducing cyst burden in neonatal brain and eyes.

Does atovaquone prolong the disease-free interval of toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis?
The data suggests that therapy with atovaquone has the potential to prolong the time to recurrence of Toxoplasma retinochoroiditis. Expand
Can the route of Toxoplasma gondii infection affect the ophthalmic outcomes?
The routes of Toxoplasma infection affect the ophthalmic outcomes and this may be the case in human disease, it seems that the prognosis of postnatal acquired ocular toxoplasmosis is better than that of congenital disease. Expand
Management of Intraocular Infections in HIV
Although the treatment of intraocular infections in patients with AIDS may be challenging, prompt assessment of the clinical features and appropriate aggressive management of the underlying etiology are critical to avoid life and vision threatening. Expand
Screening for common eye diseases in the elderly with Optos ultra-wide-field scanning laser ophthalmoscopy: a pilot study with focus on ocular toxoplasmosis
It is confirmed that UWF-SLO technology is helpful in the rapid detection of peripheral retinal injuries in elderly patients such as OT and may be used as a routine screening tool. Expand
