Ophthalmoscopic examination in a series of septicemic patients with positive blood cultures revealed a significant number of patients with fundus lesions. Review of the medical diagnoses and laboratory data did not show any consistent abnormalities differentiating between septic patients with or without fundus lesions. Septicemia should be considered in the differential diagnosis of cotton wool lesions, hemorrhages, or white-centered hemorrhages in the retina.
