Boy has progressive blurry vision in the right eye

Article

Toxocariasis was diagnosed in this 8-year-old patient, with multiple foci of intraretinal inflammatory lesions and overlying vitreous seeding (Figures 1 and 2). The patient was treated with a sub-Tenon's triamcinolone acetonide injection approximately 1 month after his presentation. At 1 month follow-up, the patient's visual acuity had improved to 20/20 in the right eye with marked improvement of the inflammatory infiltrates (Figures 4 and 5). At his 2-month follow-up, the patient's vision was stable, and there was further resolution of the inflammatory lesions (Figure 6).
