Toxoplasma retinochoroiditis is an entity of variable incidence according to the country and it is prevalent in Colombia and Latin America. The purpose of this report is to present two cases of toxoplasma retinochoroiditis with unusual associations with other retinal diseases. The first case corresponds to a young immunocompetent patient who developed toxoplasma retinochoroiditis in one eye and was treated. Six years later, he presented a similar picture in the contralateral eye and the same diagnostic was done. But the evolution was torpid and finally an herpetic acute retinal necrosis was confirmed. The second case corresponds to a healthy young patient, who developed toxoplasma retinochoroiditis and at the time of diagnosis he had exudative lesions in the same eye, that difficulted the diagnosis and were due to adult Coats´ disease.
