Retinitis pigmentosa sine pigmento is a variant of retinitis pigmentosa in which there is an absence of the characteristic peripheral bone-spicule-like pigmentary changes. Other features of the condition are still seen in this photograph including arteriolar attenuation and atrophy of the retinal pigmented epithelium. The OCT shows a perifoveal loss of the photoreceptors and retinal pigmented epithelium. Ring scotomata are visible on the Goldmann visual fields.
