Abstract: 

Ocular Toxoplasmosis may result from either congenital or acquired Toxoplasmosis. The infection is commonly diagnosed by ophthalmologic examination and the empiric therapy instituted against the organism may confirm the clinical findings. But in some patients the clinical presentation is not diagnostic and in some others the response to the treatment is inadequate. Amplipification of parasite DNA can be used to support or confirm the diagnosis of Toxoplasma Gondii as the causative agent of ocular toxoplasmosis. In this study the utility of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for diagnosis of ocular toxoplasmosis in a patient with sever inflammation and retinal detachment is demonstrated.
