Abstract

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is characterized by progressive loss of vision and accompanied by many syndromes. Therefore, early diagnosis is very important in RP. Now, definitive treatment of RP is not available. Diagnosis is performed with good medical history and ophthalmolojical examination. We present a patient with RP and describe diagnosis, treatment and approach to this disease.
