PMID:  17763129     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors report a case series of presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (POHS) from India. Patients with progressive diminution of vision and having subretinal neovascularisation (SRNVM) were evaluated thoroughly to look for signs of POHS. Three patients had features suggestive of POHS, which to the best of the authors' knowledge is the first case series reported from India. This study shows that patients with clinical features suggestive of POHS do exist in India. A thorough fundus examination of young adults with supposedly idiopathic SRNVM may help to uncover more cases of POHS in India.
