Abstract

No erythrocyte glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD)-deficient person was detected among 90 male patients with congenital color blindness (CCB) diagnosed at the Ophthalmology Clinic of our Hospital. Eighteen complete G6PD-deficient subjects had normal color vision. These results suggest that there is a linkage disequilibrium between CCB and G6PD genes.
