    Diagnostic Evaluation of Ocular Toxocariasis Using High-Penetration Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: To study a case with intraretinal Toxocara larvae in a granuloma using high-penetration optical coherence tomography (HP-OCT). Methods: A 50-year-old man, who was referred to our clinic with ocular toxocariasis, initially presented with granuloma formation in the retina. We followed the treatment-associated changes in the toxocariasis lesion by a series of examinations using HP-OCT before and after a systemic corticosteroid and anthelmintic therapy. Results: The posterior pole granuloma initially appeared as a yellowish-white intraretinal lesion with an exudative focus and dye leakage seen on angiography. After therapy, the lesion was no longer exudative. During treatment-free periods, an intraretinal lesion ...
