Comments and Conclusions (cont'd) Similar OCT findings to the RP patients presented in this issue, with the PIL only being present under the fovea, have been shown in two separate research studies.9r12 One study that separated RP patients into 3 groups based on the presence of the PIL in OCT sections (Type l: NO
Comments and Conclusions Retinitis pigmentosa is a hereditary retinal degeneration that can be inherited as an autosomal-recessive(50-60%), autosomal dominant (30-40%), or Winked disorder. Over 45 different genes have been identified for retinitis pigmentosa, which accounts for approximately 60% of all cases.l The prevalence of RP worldwide is 1 in 4000.1 The majority Of RP
