Retinitis pigmentosa-43 (RP43) is characterized by night blindness in the first decade of life, with progressive loss of peripheral visual fields and reduction in visual acuity. Examination reveals typical features of RP, including waxy pallor of optic disc, attenuated retinal vessels, and bone-spicule pigment in midperipheral retina. Macular edema and/or atrophy has been observed in some patients. Electroretinographic responses are markedly reduced or absent (summary by Huang et al., 1995 and Corton et al., 2010). [from OMIM]
