Six patients showing typical manifestations and some rare features of the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome are presented and discussed in the light of present knowledge. Krypton laser photocoagulation was used in one patient with encouraging results. Histoplasmin skin testing was negative in all cases. HLA typing supported the previous findings of an association with HLA B7 but not DRw2. Although the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome is not uncommon outside America the true aetiology of this condition remains obscure.
