Erratum

Erratum in: “Genotype and Phenotype Studies in Autosomal Dominant Retinitis Pigmentosa (adRP) of the French Canadian Founder Population” by Razek Georges Coussa, Christina Chakarova, Radwan Ajlan, Mohammed Taha, Conrad Kavalec, Julius Gomolin, Ayesha Khan, Irma Lopez, Huanan Ren, Naushin Waseem, Kunka Kamenarova, Shomi S. Bhattacharya, and Robert K. Koenekoop (Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. 2015;56:8297–8305) doi: 10.1167/iovs.15-17104

The authors discovered an error in the reported age of one of the patients. The error does not affect the conclusions of the article. The following changes have been made to the article online.

In the first paragraph of the Methods, this information has been added after the first sentence:

Fifty-five of the families were longstanding French Canadian immigrants; 5 families were recent immigrants to Quebec.

In the Results, this section has been changed.

Original Version

TOPORS c.2666A>C (p.H889R).

At the time of examination, the patient with this TOPORS mutation was a 38 years old woman who reported nyctalopia since the age of 12 years old. She then reported a progressive constriction of her peripheral vision. Her BCVA was 20/40 OD and 20/50 OS. The ERG showed 95% preservation in the rod amplitude compared to normal (data not presented).

Corrected Version

TOPORS c.2666A>C (p.H889R).

At the last time of examination, the patient with this TOPORS mutation was a 50-year-old woman who reported nyctalopia since the age of 12 years. She then reported a progressive constriction of her peripheral vision. Her BCVA was 20/40 OD and 20/50 OS. The ERG showed more than 95% loss in the rod amplitude compared to normal (data not presented).

In the Figure 3 legend, the age of the woman has been changed from 38 to 50.
