Retinitis pigmentosa reflects a family of diseases that result in retinal photoreceptor death and functional blindness. The natural course of retinal changes secondary to photoreceptor degeneration involves anatomical remodeling (cell process alterations and soma displacement) and neurochemical remodeling. Anatomical remodeling predominantly occurs late in the disease process and cannot explain the significant visual deficits that occur very early in the disease process. Neurochemical… CONTINUE READING
