The ocular manifestations of AIDS are for the most part due to the opportunistic infections and neoplasias seen in the syndrome. Infections of cytomegalovirus, Pneumocystis carinii, toxoplasmosis, Candida albicans, Cryptococcus sp., and Mycobacterium avium-intra-2 cellulars have been reported. Conjunctival Kaposi's sarcoma has been noted as well. 11 Ocular findings were observed in 41 of 71 (57.8%) of AIDS patients examined during the period from April 1981 to December 1983. The majority (55 cases) were or referral from the medical service subdivisions of clinical Immunology and Infectious Diseases. The remainder (16 cases) were as consultations from referring ophthalmologists. Some of the patients were examined only once while the remainder were followed for months usually until the patients death.
