Abstract

A 70-year-old woman treated for acute myelogenous leukemia developed systemic trichosporosis and presumptive trichosporon chorioretinitis. The elevated choroidal lesion appeared during an episode of trichosporon sepsis and increased in size during immunosuppression. Possible retinal vein occlusion and neovascularization were further complications that may be due to the angioinvasive properties of the organism.
