  • There have been a number of histopathologic studies of retinas that were taken post mortem from patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), but few have addressed the question of transneuronal degeneration of ganglion cells secondary to photoreceptor death. We studied sectioned maculae that were obtained from 41 patients with different genetic forms of RP: autosomal dominant (n = 11); X-linked (n = 9); and simplex (n = 21). We also studied sectioned maculae that were taken from 20 age-matched… CONTINUE READING
