Eye abnormalities on OCT scans in RVCL-S
Researchers at the LUMC have recently published about abnormalities in the eyes of RVCL-S patients. With OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) scans they evaluated the thickness of the retina. They found that the retina was thinner in RVCL-S patients compared to healthy controls. This already occurred in the absence of other abnormalities during ophthalmological evaluations.
