Despite the significant advances that have been achieved in the recent past, major challenges remain in the areas of prevention and management of acute infection in pregnancy, the fetus, and the newborn and in the understanding and treatment of toxoplasmic chorioretinitis and infection in immunocompromised individuals [3,4,1,5].
Chorioretinitis in people is caused by infection acquired in utero with symptoms including blurred vision, photophobia, and loss of central vision.
gondii infection may cause chorioretinitis, abortion or nervous system problems in the newborn, and T.
CMV infection can be important in immunosuppressed patients and during pregnancy; thus, in newborns, CMV may cause asymptomatic infection, prematurity, growth retardation, and illness, including acute hepatitis infection, fever, pneumonitis, encephalitis, deafness, chorioretinitis, hematologic disorders, and death.
Furthermore, punctate inner choroidopathy, pathologic myopia, sarcoidosis, tuberculosis, and other causes of chorioretinitis may be considered.
Unilateral, inactive, self-limiting depigmented chorioretinitis patches without foveal involvement or retinal detachment in an asymptomatic patient should raise the suspicion of past history of HZO although rare.
Funduscopic examination revealed a pale optic nerve and mild macular chorioretinitis.
