Abstract

An eye of a patient with clinically typical presumed ocular histoplasmosis was studied by light microscopy, electron microscopy and immuno-fluorescence techniques. There was clinical and pathological evidence of anterior segment involvement. The posterior segment showed granulomatous and nongranulomatous chorioretinal lesions with and without subretinal neovascularization. Immunohistopathological staining for histoplasma antigens revealed positive staining at sites of lymphoid inflammation. Organisms were not identified.
