Abstract

A 32-year-old patient with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) was evaluated for bilateral visual loss accompanied by uveitis, vitritis and retinochoroiditis. Diagnostic vitrectomy was performed on the right eye, and the diagnosis of ocular toxoplasmosis made. Central nervous system involvement was suggested by ring enhancing lesions on CT scan. The patient improved on a pyrimethamine, sulfadiazine and clindamycin, but succumbed to disseminated toxoplasmosis when treatment was discontinued.
