RICHARD P. HANDLER, M.D.
To the editor: A case of acquired chorioretinitis due to toxoplasmosis was reported in the January 1979 issue (1). I agree with the author that chorioretinitis does occur with acquired toxoplasmosis. It may be more common than realized, perhaps because physicians in primary care do not frequently contribute to journals. In 3 years of private practice of internal medicine, I have managed five cases of toxoplasmosis of which four were definitely acquired and in which in one case the patient developed loss of central vision in the right eye due to chorioretinitis. This case was confirmed by appropriate serologic tests
