Background/aim: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is one of the most frequent causes of blindness in newborn babies. Currently, its etiology is not fully understood. In this study we aimed to investigate the correlation between a patient group with ROP and a control group in terms of the tumor necrosis factor- alpha (TNF-alpha) (G308A) gene and glutathione-S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) (Ile105Val) gene polymorphism.
