A HEALTHY, 17-year-old black female adolescent complained of sudden loss of vision in her right eye. There was a 3+ cellular reaction and abnormal results from fundus examination and angiography (Figure 1 and Figure 2). A chorioretinal infiltrate developed (Figure 3). Results of the blood toxoplasma IgG enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay were 2.06 (high positive). Antitoxoplasmosis medications were started, prednisone was tapered, and the fundus changes were resolved (Figure 4).
