Retinitis pigmentosa is a group of related eye disorders that cause progressive vision loss. These disorders affect the retina, which is the layer of light-sensitive tissue at the back of the people with retinitis pigmentosa, vision loss occurs as the light-sensing cells of the retina gradually deteriorate.

The first sign of retinitis pigmentosa is usually a loss of night. BACKGROUND: Inversus retinis pigmentosa (RP) involves two forms: central RP and pericentral RP. Central RP could be described as pigmentary disturbance that involves the macula, and pericentral RP as pigmentary disturbance that involves an island round the macula.

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) refers to a heterogeneous group of inherited ocular diseases that result in a progressive retinal degeneration affecting 1 in 3, to 5, people (Veltel et al., ).Symptoms include night blindness, the development of tunnel vision, and slowly progressive decreased central vision starting at approximately 20 years of age.

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) can be inherited in an autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, or X-linked manner.
