Abstract

We report the autofluorescence pattern and optical coherence tomography (OCT) characteristics in a 6-year-old boy with glutathione synthetase deficiency. The patient underwent complete ophthalmological examination, including full-field electroretinography, visual evoked potentials, fundus autofluorescence, and OCT imaging. Electrophysiological studies showed time-delay and subnormal responses. Fundus autofluorescence imaging revealed increased parafoveal autofluorescence compared to normal, and OCT showed alteration of photoreceptor and retinal pigment epithelium layers in the parafoveal region.
