Four Negro patients who have Oguchi's disease are presented. All patients are members of the same family. The family history and the clinical and fluorescein angiographic findings are described. Mizuo's phenomenon is demonstrated and a possible defect in pigment epithelium is described. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported occurrence of Oguchi's Disease in Negroes.
