This paper comprises a review of material recently reported (Wilder, 1952). It is based on the finding of organisms morphologically indistinguishable from in chorioretinal lesions in 53 eyes in the Registry of Ophthalmic Pathology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.

The eyes were enucleated from patients between the ages of 14 and 83 years. Although eye symptoms had been observed for periods of a few weeks to 32 years, the earliest history of onset was at 12 years. On the other hand, six patients had a history of onset in the seventh decade of life, and two in the eighth. The geographic distribution was wide. Specimens were sent in from all sections of the United States, and one patient was a resident of the Canal Zone. Three patients first noted symptoms while in the European and one while in the Pacific area.
