  • Microcephaly and chorioretinopathy, autosomal recessive, 1 (MCCRP1) [MIM:251270]: A syndrome characterized by microcephaly, cognitive impairment, underdeveloped retina and choroid, and epilepsy in some patients. The more anterior parts of the retina, near the periphery and pars plana, have a grayish hue and diminutive vasculature similar to retinopathy of prematurity. Visual impairment becomes evident during the first year of life. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22279524}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
