PMID:  306756     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A brother and sister born of a consanguinous marriage had bilateral foveal retinoschisis and a generalized rod-cone dysfunction. This was associated with nyctalopia, hyperopia, minimal vitreous opacities in the sister, a paramacular tapetal sheen reflex, normal retinal vessels, an abnormal electroretinogram, and a normal electro-oculogram in the less affected brother. Foveal retinoschisis is not pathognomonic for x-chromosome-linked juvenile retinoschisis. It may be seen as a manifestation of a macular dystrophy or associated with a generalized tapetoretinal dystrophy.
