Abstract

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) in treatment of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis in five patients. After six months the CNV resolved as confirmed by fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) in all patients. The visual acuity improved from mean 20/400 to 20/80 and Central Macular Thickness (CMT) decreased from 390 μm to 253 μm, which was maintained till the last follow-up visit.
