Although it is usually a selflimited disease, it may reduce vision secondary to the optic nerve or macular involvement and/or severe vitreous inflammation. The "classic" sign of the infection is pigmented chorioretinal scar. The fluffy white nidus of the necrotizing retinochoroiditis can be seen adjacent to it. Here, we aimed to present a toxoplasmic chorioretinitis case complicated with a large serous macular detachment that we achieved anatomical and functional success as a result of prompt and suitable therapy. Keywords : Serous macular detachment, toxoplasmic chorioretinitis, retinochoroiditis
