Reactivation of ocular toxoplasmosis after LASIK.
J Refract Surg 2005 Nov-Dec; 21(6):759-61JR

Abstract

PURPOSE

To report a reactivation of ocular toxoplasmosis after LASIK.

METHODS

Case report of a 34-year-old man who underwent bilateral LASIK. The posterior segment examination revealed an old toxoplasmosis scar in the retinal periphery of the right eye.

RESULTS

Uncorrected visual acuity improved postoperatively, and the patient was satisfied. However, 52 days after the procedure, he complained of loss of visual acuity in his right eye. Examination revealed signs of anterior uveitis, vitreitis, and active chorioretinal lesion satellite of the old toxoplasmosis scar. The patient was treated with a multidrug regiment with resolution of the vitreous and lesion activity.

CONCLUSIONS

Toxoplasmosis reactivation may develop after LASIK.
