    Retinitis pigmentosa is a hereditary eye disease where the retinal rods are affected. Usually it becomes manifest by defective night vision first in childhood or later in early adulthood. The hereditary factor is variably penetrant as it can be autosomal dominant (child has symptoms) or autosomal recessive (symptoms start later in life).   Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a group of hereditary disorders of the photoreceptors and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) which gradually causes night blindness and progressive constriction of the visual field. Waxy optic disc pallor, arteriolar narrowing and hyalinization are found in almost all cases.
