    Fundus photograph of left eye showing Cytomegalovirus retinitis of a 40-year-old male with positive HIV history. He presented with CD4 cell count of 50 cells/mm3 and decreased vision of left eye. In the photograph we can see the three typical patterns in this retinitis: a hemorrhagic appearance in superior temporal arcade and between nasal arcades, granular pattern in superior temporal retina, and a “frosted branch” angiitis surrounding the retinal vessels in nasal and superior retina.
