Abstract

When treating a patient with neuroleptics or tricyclic antidepressants, it is usually assumed that complaints of blurred vision can be ascribed to the anticholinergic side effects of these drugs. The authors present a patient treated with imipramine and trifluoperazine whose complaints of blurred vision led to the diagnosis of toxoplasma chorioretinitis.
