During recent years a large number of articles have been published on the subject of angioid streaks of the retina and their nature. While angioid streaks are most frequently associated with pseudoxanthoma elasticum, there have been a number of instances reported in connection with other conditions, as shown in the accompanying table. For example, 9 cases have been mentioned in connection with Paget's disease in the past ; these were enumerated by Terry.1 I was fortunate in
encountering 2 more classic examples of angioid streaks in patients with this disease, and I thought them of sufficient interest to report. I believe that by directing attention to other conditions in addition to pseudoxanthoma elasticum in which careful investigation should be made for the presence of angioid streaks, more pathologic material may be obtained.
