Abstract

Usher syndrome is a rare heterogenous autosomal recessive genetic disorder with features of visual impairment due to retinitis pigmentosa and hearing loss. Other names for it include Hallgren syndrome, Usher-Hallgren syndrome, retinitis pigmentosa-dysacusis syndrome, and dystrophia retinae dysacusis syndrome.1,2 Usher syndrome represents a genetically diverse condition that involves both early onset sensorineural hearing loss and retinal pathology. While reports of disease prevalence vary, the condition has been estimated to occur in three in 100, 000 individuals.
