The microscopic structure of the choroid and retina in the various forms of leukemia has been carefully described by many competent observers, whose reports have in turn been reviewed by Leber,1 Kümmel2 and Hudson.3 The present study, consisting of a histologic examination of the globes in eleven cases of leukemia, indicates the frequency of typical and atypical leukemic lesions in general and draws attention to certain features rarely met with in previous studies.
Of the group under study, three were cases of chronic myeloid leukemia, five of acute myeloid leukemia and two of chronic lymphatic leukemia. In all ten cases, the clinical diagnosis was confirmed by autopsy. The clinical diagnosis in still another case was aleukemic lymphadenosis, and autopsy revealed diffuse hyperplasia of the lymph nodes and lymphatic infiltrations in several internal organs. Ophthalmoscopic examination had been done in nine of the eleven
