During December, 1954, the Parasitology and Tropical Medicine Study Section, Division of Research Grants, National Institutes of Health, sponsored a conference on granulomatous uveitis at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md., in order to determine the relationship of the various etiologic entities producing this form of uveitis. It was considered particularly desirable to evaluate the clinical and laboratory tests for the diagnosis of toxoplasmic infections of the eye and to determine whether these tests should be made available for the general use of ophthalmologists by the U. S. Public Health Service.
In addition to the author of this report, the following persons attended and presented data for consideration: Drs. Harry Feldman, Jack K. Frenkel, Alan Woods,* Hans Eichenwald, Ralph Ryan, Marion Brooks, and Ronald Wood. The following attended as observers and offered such information and advice as they considered desirable: Col. J. H. King (MC), U. S. Army; Capt.
HOGAN MJ. Ocular Toxoplasmosis: Clinical and Laboratory Diagnosis; Evaluation of Immunologic Tests; Treatment. AMA Arch Ophthalmol. 1956;55(3):333–345. doi:10.1001/archopht.1956.00930030337005
