Toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis (TRC) is the most common cause of infectious posterior uveitis. A vitreous inflammation is usually present and occasionally vasculitis is observed. Unusual clinical features on TRC such as vitreous hemorrhage (VH) may be observed. We report the case of an inactive TRC revealed by a VH due to peripheral retinal neo vascularization (RN) distant from the scar lesion.

Keywords: Toxoplasmic retinochoroiditis; Vitreous hemorrhage; Retinal neo vascularization
