Electroretinographic and electroencephalographic studies were conducted in a 12-year-old boy with nephronophthisis, chronic hepatic fibrosis, mental retardation and tapetoretinal degeneration (Senior-Boichis syndrome). Markedly reduced ERG amplitudes and flat oscillatory potentials were found in the proband. Delayed scotopic implicit time and reduced amplitudes of the beta-wave were found in the mother's ERG. ERG may identify the carrier state of the Senior-Boichio syndrome.
