Abstract

Patients with systemic reticulum cell sarcoma often develop evidence of ocular involvement months or several years prior to the onset of neurologic symptoms. This neoplasm appears to have proclivity of arising multicentrically within the subpigment epithelial space, as well as in the vitreous. When this occurs it may produce a peculiar ophthalmoscopic picture of multiple large, solid detachments of the pigment epithelium that is rarely duplicated by any other disease. Three patients illustrating this disease are presented.
