Autosomal Dominant Optic Atrophy - Hearing Loss - Peripheral Neuropathy Syndrome



  • Individuals typically present with bilateral and slow vision loss starting in the first or second decade of life.[eyewiki.aao.org]
  • Figure A ) The median age of onset of the symptoms and complications of Wolfram syndrome are presented with different curves and the intersections with the x-axis. [1].[diapedia.org]
  • In our family, the presentation of the optic atrophy and the bilateral progressive sensorineural hearing loss is similar to the presentation of the families with autosomal dominant optic neuropathy and deafness and a mutation in OPA1.[molvis.org]
  • Presentation [ edit ] Autosomal dominant optic atrophy can present clinically as an isolated bilateral optic neuropathy (non-syndromic form) or rather as a complicated phenotype with extra-ocular signs (syndromic form).[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Recently a variant of OPA1 mutation with phenotypic presentation like Behr syndrome is also described.[checkrare.com]
