A 60-year-old man receiving antituberculous and corticosteroid therapy for a granulomatous disease of uncertain etiology was found to have a chorioretinal mass in his right eye. Fluorescein angiography showed blockage of fluorescence by the mass and late leakage. Autopsy findings were compatible with Hodgkin's disease with disseminated nocardiosis caused by Nocardia asteroides. Organisms typical of Nocardia were found in the choroid and subretinal space. The patient's history, ophthalmic examination, and fluorescein angiographic findings suggested a type of chorioretinal involvement.
