To the Editor.  —Subretinal hemorrhage from choroidal neovascularization during fluorescein angiography may not be quite as rare as Catalano and coworkers1 presume. We reported a similar case with long-term follow-up in a young man with the ophthalmoscopic appearance of presumed ocular histoplasmosis with choroidal neovascularization.2 Our patient did have transient nausea with a Valsalva-like episode in the middle of the angiogram that was presumably associated with the patient's hemorrhage.
