Abstract

Purpose: To describe the management of a giant retinal tear with retinal detachment in a patient with active toxoplasmosis retinochoroiditis. Results: While receiving systemic medications for toxoplasmosis, the patient underwent scleral buckling, pars plana vitrectomy, and C3F8 gas tamponade without removal of the lens. At last follow-up, best corrected visual acuity was 20/20 with an attached retina and the toxoplasmosis lesion was inactive. Conclusions: and Importance: Using modern surgical techniques, anatomic and clinical success is possible during active retinochoroiditis.
