What are the causes for Achromatopsia?
Achromatopsia is caused by a mutation in the CNGA3, CNGB43, or GNAT2 gene.
List of causes of Achromatopsia
Following is a list of causes or underlying conditions
(see also Misdiagnosis of underlying causes of Achromatopsia)
that could possibly cause Achromatopsia includes:
Malfunction of the retinal phototransduction pathway
Genetic causes of this are mutations in the cone cell cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channels CNGA3 (ACHM2) and CNGB3 (ACHM3) as well as the cone cell transducin, GNAT2 (ACHM4)
Acquired- Acquired achromatopsia/dyschromatopsia is a condition associated with damage to the diencephalon (primarily the thalamus of the mid brain) or the cerebral cortex (the new brain)
