Retinitis pigmentosa is the most common chronic and inherited condition of retinal dystrophy. The progressive involvement of retinal photoreceptors and other layers characterize this condition. This situation results in optic disc pallor and retinal pigment deposition vascular attenuation.


We present the case of a 15-year-old male with a history of 6 months evolution characterized by night blindness and bilateral impairment of superior temporal vision.


This type of dystrophy is a genetic and progressive eye condition that begins during adolescence and produces visual impairment.
