Summary: On the basis of the review articles and own experience the authors describe actual knowledge about pathogenesis, clinical presentation and diagnosis with particular allowance of electrophysiological tests (EOG, ERG, PERG, mfERG) in Stargardt's macular dystrophy. Conclusions: Despite significant progress in understanding pathogenesis of the Stargardt's macular dystrophy, it is still incurable disease progressing to visual disability. Electrophysiological tests are particularly useful in early diagnosis, differential diagnosis as well as in monitoring of natural, frequently very different course of the disease.
Keywords: Stargardt's macular dystrophy, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment.
