Ocular disorders associated with a new severe acquired cellular immunodeficiency syndrome.

Among the prominent features of a newly described acquired cellular immunodeficiency syndrome that affects previously healthy male homosexuals are multiple opportunistic infections and Kaposi's sarcoma. Immunosuppression induced by cytomegalovirus infection may play a major role in the pathogenesis of this disorder. We have performed ophthalmic examinations on seven such patients and found ocular abnormalities in all cases. Six patients were examined during the course of their illness and one patient at autopsy only. Each patient had several cotton-wool spots in the affected eye. Other ocular findings included cytomegalovirus retinitis, severe retinal periphlebitis, and conjunctival Kaposi's sarcoma (one case each).
