  • The prognosis in Retinitis Pigmentosa depends on the form of inheritance and age of presentation. The later the disease appears, the better it is.[barraquer.com]

  • Educate the community – be a teacher You will be surprised by the lack of awareness people have regarding the problems, prognosis and conditions of retinitis pigmentosa. Educating your community will come with challenges but with fruitful results.[irisvision.com]

Etiology

  • Coexistence of these disorders might support the inflammatory pathway in etiology of RP.[tandfonline.com]
  • Etiology More than 3,000 mutations in over 57 different genes or loci are currently known to cause non-syndromic RP.[orpha.net]
  • Prevention The characterization of mutations in genes already involved in RP and thus the etiology based on DNA analysis, is, at present, a high cost and laborious task.[barraquer.com]
  • Defining unilateral retinitis pigmentosa, one should consider the following criteria: exclusion of infectious etiology of the disease (syphilis, rubella, virus retinitis, onchocerciasis), presence of classic symptoms on the diseased eye, and absence of[csjournal.ca]
