HOROYODIT - inflammation of the choroid itself. It develops with tuberculosis, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, streptococcal, viral infections, etc. Most often, the pathogens penetrate the eye's choroid by hematogenous means. Patients complain of the appearance of turbidity in the eye, a decrease in visual acuity (a frequent, but not a permanent sign of the disease). Pain, as a rule, are absent. An ophthalmoscope examination reveals exudative yellowish-white foci and retinal edema.

The treatment is carried out in the hospital, mainly aimed at the underlying disease. The prognosis for vision with timely treatment is usually favorable; only with central chorioretinitis, exciting the region of the yellow spot, irreversible visual disturbances occur.
