Ocular toxoplasmosis related macular traction: A case report
Published in the Saudi Journal of Ophthalmology, the authors present a case of toxoplasmosis retinochoroiditis which resulted in the formation of vitreomacular traction upon resolution which is rarely associated with ocular toxoplasmosis.

A 39-year-old male came with an active toxoplasmosis retinochoroiditis. Best-corrected visual acuity, full ophthalmic slitlamp examination, colour fundus photography, spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), and fluorescein angiography were performed.

Presumed ocular toxoplasmosis diagnosis was supported by serological tests. The patient was treated medically for 45 days and on his follow up he developed macular traction which was shown in SD-OCT with a good visual acuity. Vitreoretinal traction is a rare complication of ocular toxoplasmosis and ranges from mild to severe traction which might require surgery.

The authors suggest a close follow up for patients with toxoplasmosis retinochoroiditis and early recognition could avoid exposing patients to surgery.
