Abstract

Patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) are at high risk of developing opportunistic ocular infections. A recently recognized finding in this category is choroiditis. We describe a patient with AIDS in whom choroiditis was suspected at an early stage of the disease, on the basis of fluorescein angiography, computerized tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging findings early diagnosis and prompt treatment may prolong the survival of these patients.
