Bilateral retinal detachments developed in a renal allograft patient several months after the onset of cytomegalovirus retinitis. Laser photocoagulation was used to limit the posterior extent of one detachment until the detachment was surgically repaired. The thinned, atrophic retina that results from the necrotizing retinitis makes localization of retinal holes difficult and, in this case, contributed to the initial impression that these detachments were nonrhegmatogenous in origin.
