Abstract

Four patients, three after renal transplantation and one after heart-lung transplantation, developed visual loss in both eyes associated with geographic zones of disruption and coarse clumping of the pigment epithelium in the posterior fundi. Secondary retinal detachment occurred bilaterally in three patients. Localized choroidal intravascular coagulation is the suspected but unproven cause.
