The m.3243A>G variant in the MTL1 gene is a DNA point mutation which has been shown to cause a variety of diseases including retinal abnormalities. We report on the ophthalmologic phenotype and systemic findings in a new patient with this mutation, presenting with sensorineural hearing loss, diabetes and macular dystrophy. We characterized the retinal phenotype with a multimodal approach and throughout the follow-up period we observed sustained centripetal progression of the areas of chorioretinal atrophy.
