  • OBJECTIVE To determine the extent of preservation in the inner retina in retinitis pigmentosa (RP). METHODS We analyzed sectioned maculae of 21 postmortem eyes with RP and 19 age-matched, normal, postmortem eyes. Eyes were divided into 2 groups: severe and moderate RP. Cell nuclei were counted in the outer nuclear, inner nuclear, and ganglion cell layers within thirty 100-microns intervals from the foveola to 1500-microns eccentricity. RESULTS Statistically significant (P < or = .05) loss… CONTINUE READING
