    The diagnostic usefulness of the negative electroretinogram.
    Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2017 Nov 30. Epub 2017 Nov 30.
    Servicio de Oftalmología, Hospital Universitario Ramón y Cajal, Instituto Ramón y Cajal de Investigaciones Sanitarias (IRYCIS), Madrid, España; Departamento de Cirugía, Ciencias Médicas y Sociales, Universidad de Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, España.
    The definition of the negative response of the full field electroretinogram is the presence of a b-wave with less amplitude than the a-wave (b/a ratio<1) in the combined response of cones and rods. The presence of this pattern reflects an alteration in the bipolar cells, the Müller cells, or in the transmission of the stimulus from the photoreceptors to the bipolar cells, with preserved photoreceptor function. This finding can be seen bilaterally and symmetrically in different hereditary conditions, such as congenital stationary night blindness, juvenile X-linked retinoschisis, and Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies.
