Seven cases illustrate the ocular pathology of disseminated intravascular coagulopathy in its several stages, and correlate these changes with the clinical manifestations. The prime abnormalities consisted of detachments of the retina, vacuolar disruption of the pigment epithelium, choroidal hemorrhage, and, most importantly, thrombotic occlusion of the choriocapillaris and of the juxtaposed vessels in the submacular and peripapillary regions. The changes were characteristically symmetrical in the two eyes.
