ⓘ Retinoschisis

Retinoschisis is an eye disease characterized by the abnormal splitting of the retinas neurosensory layers, usually in the outer plexiform layer. Most common forms are asymptomatic, some rarer forms result in a loss of vision in the corresponding visual field.

Almost all of the cases X-linked recessive and caused by mutations in the retinoschisin gene PC1.
