Stargardt disease is the most common hereditary macular dystrophy and is characterized by decreased central vision, atrophy of the macula and underlying retinal pigment epithelium, and frequent presence of prominent flecks in the posterior pole of the retina. STGD is most commonly inherited as an autosomal recessive trait (see 248200), but STGD4 is inherited as an autosomal domiant trait (summary by Kniazeva et al., 1999). [from OMIM]
