PURPOSE: To determine the cause of spontaneous choroidal hemorrhage in a 67-year-old man after a myocardial infarction and administration of tissue plasminogen activator. METHODS: The patient underwent ocular examination. RESULTS: The patient retained excellent visual acuity and the choroidal hemorrhage resolved completely within two months. CONCLUSION: The administration of tissue plasminogen activator was responsible for the large extent of hemorrhage and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of hemorrhagic choroidal detachment.
