PMID:  556155     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of bilateral vitreous hemorrhage is presented in a young black man. Work-up showed the patient to have Hb AA with a markedly positive PPD and a negative chest roentgenogram. A diagnosis of periphlebitis retinae or so-called Eales' disease was made. This case was remarkable in its speed of progression and the severity of the disease process. This case calls attention to the importance of rapid diagnosis and evaluation for possible treatment.
