We report a case of sympathetic ophthalmia with subretinal neovascularization of the macula. The subretinal neovascularization developed after penetrating trauma to the fellow eye. The occurrence of subretinal neovascularization in sympathetic ophthalmia is not surprising since disintegrative changes and breaks in Bruch's membrane have been reported in sympathetic ophthalmia. Subretinal neovascularization has also been reported in Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada syndrome, which is histopathologically similar to sympathetic ophthalmia.
