• A patient with bilateral presumed ocular histoplasmosis had been successfully treated in his symptomatic right eye with laser photocoagulation for subretinal neovascularization in two areas of the macula. The left eye also showed neovascularization clinically and histopathologically but was not treated because there was no detectable leakage and the vision was not affected. There was no change in the left eye over a two-year period. Clinicopathologic correlation of the treated and untreated macular lesions and the peripapillary and peripheral lesions is presented.
