• To our knowledge, this is the first published description of the clinical and pathologic features of combined ocular infection with both cytomegalovirus and Cryptococcus. Infection occurred in a patient treated by immunosuppression and corticosteroid therapy. This article emphasizes that ocular findings may be the first sign of disseminated opportunistic infection and that clinical manifestations may be sufficient to allow accurate diagnosis of opportunistic retinitis.
