Abstract

Of 344 consecutively studied patients with uveal tract disease, 73 had focal exudative retinochoroiditis and 271 had other lesions. The incidences of positive toxoplasmin skin test and Sabin dye test were significantly higher in the patients with focal exudative retinochoroiditis than in those with other lesions. The evidence strongly suggests that toxoplasmosis is the usual cause of focal exudative retinochoroiditis.
