Copper metabolism study in high myopia in the African.


There is considerable evidence which supports a link between abnormalities in copper metabolism and some pigmentary retinopathies. In a previous study, we found such abnormalities in high myopic Caucasian patients. Since the incidence of myopia, and the connection of the latter with retinal detachment, in the black are different from those found in the Caucasian, we modeled the present study on the black after the above-mentioned one carried out on the Caucasian. In the present study no abnormalities in copper metabolism were present, in the black high myopic patient.
