- 320 Downloads
Ocular cysticercosis is a parasitic infection of the larval form of the pork tapeworm (cysticerci), Taenia solium, migrates into the eye or its adnexal tissues and encysts, leading to severe vitreous opacity and secondary retinal detachment. Acute retinal necrosis (ARN) is a rare infectious viral uveitis syndrome that is caused by members of the herpes family including varicella zoster virus (VZV), herpes simplex virus (HSV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), and less frequently Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Choroid is most susceptibly involved in ocular infections of mycobacterium tuberculosis. For the solitary choroidal tuberculoma, careful differential diagnosis should be made with choroidal tumors.
