• 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.
