A case of subretinal hemorrhage associated with cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis in a human immunodeficiency virus-positive woman is described. The patient was found to have an exudative retinal detachment involving the fovea, subretinal hemorrhage, cotton wool spots, and active CMV retinitis temporal to the exudative detachment. No evidence of systemic coagulopathy was found. Although unusual, subretinal hemorrhage may be observed in association with CMV retinitis in the absence of a systemic coagulopathy.
