What is the definition of X-Linked Retinitis Pigmentosa (XLRP)?
X-linked retinitis pigmentosa is a type of inherited eye disorder that affects the retina, causing progressive vision loss. X-linked retinitis pigmentosa is classified as non-syndromic because it occurs by itself instead of as part of other syndromes.
