BACKGROUND Usher syndrome (USH) is an autosomal recessive disorder comprising retinitis pigmentosa, hearing loss and, in some cases, vestibular dysfunction. It is clinically and genetically heterogeneous with three distinctive clinical types (I-III) and nine Usher genes identified. This study is a comprehensive clinical and genetic analysis of 172 Usher patients and evaluates the contribution of digenic inheritance. METHODS The genes MYO7A, USH1C, CDH23, PCDH15, USH1G, USH2A, GPR98, WHRN… CONTINUE READING
