PURPOSE: Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) is the most severe inherited retinopathy with the earliest age of onset. To date, eleven genes have been reported to cause the non-syndromic LCA phenotype. The CEP290 gene has been shown to account for Joubert and Senior-Loken syndromes and to represent a frequent cause of non-syndromic LCA. The aim of the present study was to establish the prevalence of CEP290 c.2991_1655A>G in non-syndromic Spanish patients having LCA or early-onset retinitis pigmentosa (RP). METHODS: We used automated sequencing to examine 49 non-syndromic Spanish families with LCA and 126 Spanish families with early-onset RP for the CEP290 c.2991_1655A>G mutation. As a control, we recruited 50 unrelated Spanish healthy individuals. RESULTS: The frequencies of mutated alleles were 6% in LCA cases and 0% in early-onset RP and healthy individual controls. These results were compared to other populations. CONCLUSIONS: The CEP290 c.2991_1655A>G mutation frequency in Spanish non-syndromic LCA families is lower than that of other countries.
