Abstract

Toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii. Primary infection by this organism is usually asymptomatic. Some immunocompetent patients infected with this parasite can present as an acute systemic infection but symptoms can also present as ocular disease. In these instances, the ocular disease may be the only symptom, and can be from either an acute infection or a reactivation of the disease.
