Abstract

To screen mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variations in Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON). Ten LHON patients were selected from neuro-ophthalmology clinics of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, India. Clinical evaluation included slit-lamp biomicroscopy, fundus...read more
