Abstract

Six black patients had fundus lesions diagnostic of the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome. All patients had peripapillary changes or peripheral punched-out chorioretinal lesions, or both. Five of the six had macular subretinal neovascularization, disciform scarring, or an atrophic macular lesion, and one patient had a macular hole; four of five patients tested had a positive histoplasmin skin test. The macular involvement was bilateral in three of the six cases. HLA B-7 was present in one of four patients who had HLA typing. Macular involvement can occur in blacks with the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome.
