Abstract

Ocular toxoplasmosis occurs during the acute acquired infection, during active congenital infection in utero and the newborn period and as a recudescent sequela of both types of infection. It also occurs in immune compromised persons usually as reactivation disease. Destruction of the eye is secondary to parasite replication and the immune response to parasite growth may augment this destruction. Clinical features, parthogenesis, immunology and protective and pathogenic mechanisms, pathology, animal models for study of the disease, and methods of treatment are summerized and discussed.
