Background: This study was performed to evaluate the rate of abnormality in the ERG test (electroretinogram test) in the cyclosporine users referred to the Basir Clinic during 2015-2016.
Materials and methods: In this case- control study, 50 patients who had been prescribed cyclosporine referred to the Basir Clinic during 2015-2016 were studied. Results of ERG test, including voltage and the delayed phase, were determined and were compared to the findings of the control group.
Results: The mean (±standard deviation) of the recorded voltages in the ERG in the experimental group and control group were 117.1±14.9 microvolt and 116.2±14.3 microvolt, respectively (P=0.82). The mean (± standard deviation) of recorded delayed phase in the ERG in the experimental group was 44.33±2.24 microsecond, compared to 43.42±2.11 microsecond in the control group (P=0.14).
Conclusion: According to the acquired results of this study, generally it is inferred that using cyclosporine do not significantly change the result of electroretinogram (ERG).
