Familial Foveal Retinoschisis

Arch Ophthalmol. 1977;95(7):1190-1196. doi:10.1001/archopht.1977.04450070088006

• Three young women, offspring of a nonconsanguineous marriage of normal parents, manifested mild visual loss associated with a bilateral foveal dystrophy that resembled the macular involvement in juvenile sex-linked retinoschisis. Electrophysiologic and psychophysiologic tests showed less severe involvement than the gonosomal equivalent. An autosomal recessive inheritance is proposed.
