• Six patients had hemorrhagic detachment of the peripheral retinal pigment epithelium. Abnormal neovascular nets in older individuals, under the retinal pigment epithelium and originating from the choriocapillaris, may well be the cause of such hemorrhagic detachments. This lesion must be differentiated from choroidal tumors, choroidal detachment, and uveal effusion.
