Chorioretinitis

Summary of Chorioretinitis
Chorioretinitis is an inflammation of the choroid, which is the thin pigmented vascular coat of the eye, and retina of the eye. It is a form of posterior uveitis. If only the choroid is inflamed and not the retina, the condition is termed choroiditis. The goal in treating these potentially blinding conditions is to eliminate the inflammation and minimize the potential risk of therapy to the patient.
