Abstract
Retinitis is one of the common presentation of posterior uveitis. The cause could be either an infection or inflammation but until proven otherwise, retinitis is infectious. It could present either as unifocal or multifocal presentation and may manifest either as full thickness retinitis, chorioretinitis or retinochoroiditis.
