Inherited: Retinitis pigmentosa (rp) is one of a family of inherited retinal degenerations with variable outcome but mostly substantial visual handicap. There is no cure. Victims need to get support from local rp groups and training to deal with visual handicap. You should consult a genetic counselor for your own sake and that of your children and siblings.
