Relationship of color blindness to alcoholic liver damage
Pharmacology, Volumen 4, Issue 5, 2018, Pages 297-308
Farnsworth-Munsel 100 Hue, Ishihara and hardy-Rand-Ritler tests were performed in a group of 140 alcoholics, who were also studied with routine ’liver tests’ and hepatic biopsy. The high prevalence of color blindness in the blue-yellow among alcoholics was confirmed. No significant correlation between color blindness and histological findings, abnormalities in the laboratory tests or duration of drinking was found. Results suggest thai blue-yellow defectiveness is related to alcoholism itself and not to the induced liver damage. © 1970 S. Karger AG, Basel.
