  • Cone-rod dystrophy 18 (CORD18) [MIM:615374]: A form of cone-rod dystrophy, an inherited retinal dystrophy characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination, predominantly in the macular region, and initial loss of cone photoreceptors followed by rod degeneration. This leads to decreased visual acuity and sensitivity in the central visual field, followed by loss of peripheral vision. Severe loss of vision occurs earlier than in retinitis pigmentosa. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23746546}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
