Further Care

Children with congenital infections and chorioretinitis (CR) face many possible handicaps, including partial or total loss of vision, deafness, seizure disorders, and mental retardation. Short-term care for individuals with chorioretinitis includes diagnostic and management planning. Management planning requires participation of several specialists included but not limited to the ophthalmologist, infectious disease specialist, neurologist, physiotherapist, and child development specialist.

Long-term care should alleviate debilitating conditions and improve functions for patients with chorioretinitis. An involved primary care physician should work closely with the specialists, the school system, and social workers.
