• Isolated ocular toxoplasmosis developed in two patients with Hodgkin's disease. The diagnosis was made by ophthalmoscopy of the fundus, serologic tests, and evolution. This raises the possibility that Toxoplasma infection and the localization of retinochoroiditic lesions on the macula could be the results of the immunosuppression associated with Hodgkin's disease.
