RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA 38; RP38


Alternate names

RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA 38; RP38 Is also known as rod-cone dystrophy, childhood-onset

Description

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) describes a group of disorders with progressive degeneration of rod and cone photoreceptors in a rod-cone pattern of dysfunction. RP has a prevalence of 1 in 3,500, and is genetically and phenotypically heterogeneous (summary by Mackay et al., 2010).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of retinitis pigmentosa, see {268000}.

Most common symptoms of RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA 38; RP38

  • Hearing impairment
  • Visual impairment
  • Blindness
  • Rod-cone dystrophy
  • Reduced visual acuity

RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA


Description

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited retinal dystrophy leading to progressive loss of the photoreceptors and retinal pigment epithelium and resulting in blindness usually after several decades.

Most common symptoms of RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA

  • Intellectual disability
  • Nystagmus
  • Sensorineural hearing impairment
  • Cataract
  • Visual impairment
