Newer high-resolution tools using superluminescent diodes and ultrashort pulsed lasers, allow sub-micrometer resolution, further improving image detail. Studies in the abca4 knockout mouse support the pathophysiological model of human disease.

Whereas phenotypic differences were not obvious on the basis of either qualitative fundus autofluorescence AF or SD-OCT, with quantitative AF qAFthe 2 groups of patients were clearly distinguishable.

Stargardt disease is one of the most frequent causes of macular degeneration in childhood. When in excess, all- trans -retinal can re-associate with opsin to form a complex that activates the visual cascade, although less efficiently than photoactivated rhodopsin.

Due to the high clinical variability, prognosis depends on certain parameters notably age of onset and electroretinographic findings that may help the clinician provide the patient with an indication of the course of the disease. The combined maximum lod score was 6.


The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or treatment. Using Hardy-Rand-Rittler or Ishihara color plates it is possible to detect a mild red-green dyschromatopsia in patients with Stargardt disease.

The molecule localizes precisely to the disc membranes in cone and rod outer segments, where it participates in the retinoid cycle involving a number of enzymatic reactionsthrough which the retina is able to recycle cis -retinal, the visual chromophore, thus returning the photoreceptor to its dark adapted state, enabling further enfer,edad.

Antenatal diagnosis Prenatal diagnosis is technically possible but is not used in clinical practice. Like in abca4 knockout mice, progressive accumulation of A2E in the RPE as enfeermedad deposits is the histological hallmark of Stargardt disease.

This sign, not exclusive of Stargardt disease, derives from a lack of early choroidal hyperfluorescence, which is blocked by high-grade lipofuscin accumulation in the RPE, thus improving visualization of the small retinal capillaries that become easily evident over the dark, non-fluorescent and high-contrast choroid.

Stargaardt, mean sensitivity within 2 degrees of the foveal region was significantly better in eyes with hyper-FAF than in eyes with hypo-FAF. Typically, peripheral vision is not affected, although certain patients may progress to a cone-rod phenotype that does affect the peripheral retinal starfardt.

Cone photoreceptor abnormalities correlate with vision loss in patients with Stargardt disease. Sight loss is progressive and varies depending on the patient.


Stargart other patients had other missense polymorphisms. Genetic testing is currently not performed on a routine basis.

COMB Medical license number: They reported apparent nonpenetrance in a year-old male. Regular ophthalmologic evaluations are recommended. Flecks may form individual or confluent patterns and have a typical central distribution in Stargardt patients, with variable mid-periphery involvement.

There is currently no treatment for this pathology although the research being carried out worldwide is very intense and promising. For all other comments, please send your remarks via contact us.

Morpho-functional correlation of fundus autofluorescence in Stargardt disease. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated that di-retinoid-pyridinium-ethanolamine A2E does not accumulate in the RPE of abca4 knockout mice kept in total darkness. Like in Leber Congenital Amaurosis LCAfrom which the most astonishing results of human ocular gene therapy have been obtained, the replacement of the mutant ABCA4 gene by its wild-type counterpart may produce positive results, as those observed in RPE65 gene trials.

Central scotomas were present in all patients, although the enfermeead was spared in 3. In addition, two autosomal dominant types of macular dystrophy exist that resemble STGD1: Grossly, their molecular structure consists of two transmembrane domains that provide a pathway for substrate translocation and two ATP-binding domains that bind and hydrolyze ATP, thereby supplying the energy required for substrate transport.
