Abstract

To the Editor.  —I read with great interest the description by Fountain and Schlaegel of linear equatorial streaks in the February issue of the Archives (1981;99;246-248), for I have collected six such cases during the past two years. In my experience, these streaks seem to be nondiagnostic, for they can occur in normal eyes, in high myopia, in ocular toxoplasmosis, and in presumed ocular histoplasmosis (POHS).I, therefore, do not believe it appropriate to change the POHS "triad" to a "tetrad" on the basis of this as yet unexplained but apparently nonspecific ocular sign.
