evaluated the SD-OCT findings of three cases of X-linked juvenile retinoschisis (XLRS).
Mr Terry has X-linked juvenile retinoschisis, a degenerative disorder which affects the retina and impairs the sharpness of vision in both eyes.
Juvenile retinoschisis may be differentiated from degenerative retinoschisis based on the younger age of onset and the schisis occurring in the nerve fibre layer rather than in the outer plexiform layer as in degenerative retinoschisis.
These include X-linked juvenile retinoschisis, Goldman-Favre-vitreoretinal degeneration, nicotinic acid maculopathy, docetaxel (anti-neoplastic drug) toxicity and few variants of vitreomacular traction.
These cell lines include one disease free pluripotent cell line and 24 others with individual mutations that give rise to several severe diseases such as cancer (breast cancer, Wilm's tumor and Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome), Huntington's disease, muscular dystrophy (including CMT, FSHD and Myotonic) and cystic fibrosis as well as some rarer genetic diseases such as Trisomy 5, macular dystrophy, incontinentia pigmenti, juvenile retinoschisis, alpha thalassemia and autosomal dominant torsion dystonia.
