We evaluated the ultrastructural features of seven surgically excised submacular neovascular membranes from seven patients with the ocular histoplasmosis syndrome. Excised neovascular membranes were composed of fibrovascular tissue interposed between Bruch's membrane and the retinal pigment epithelium. Cellular components present in the membranes included, in decreasing order of frequency, retinal pigment epithelium, vascular endothelium, photoreceptor cells, macrophages, erythrocytes, ghost… CONTINUE READING
