• A 34-year-old man in good general health became bilaterally totally blind by an unusual retinochoroidal degenerative disease 3 years after the initial onset of visual symptoms. The advanced stages of the retinochoroidal disease were associated with bilateral progressive iris necrosis and severe ocular pain. The constellation of findings and course of this disease represent a clinical entity that has not been previously described in the literature.
