Glaucoma can be inherited as a mendelian autosomal-dominant or autosomal- recessive trait, or as a complex multifactorial trait. Genetic approaches have. Primary Congenital Glaucoma (Infantile Glaucoma). 3-year-old female referred for evaluation of increased eye size, OS. Presented by Jeffrey. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss. The most common type is open-angle glaucoma with less.

May be a feature of systemic syndromes. Multiple CYP1B1 mutations and incomplete penetrance in an inbred population segregating primary congenital glaucoma suggest frequent de novo events and a dominant modifier locus. Discovering genes that contribute to disorders with complex inheritance is more difficult.

For a number of glaucoma-associated genes, the chromosomal location of the gene has been determined by linkage studies. J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus ; However, when glaucoma develops within the first 3 years of life in the absence of any secondary cause or related systemic problem, the term primary glauclma glaucoma is applied.

The History of Ophthalmologist. Primary congenital glaucoma PCG is characterized by developmental defect s of the trabecular meshwork and anterior chamber angle that prevent adequate drainage of aqueous humor, resulting in elevated intraocular pressure IOP and stretching of the sclera that produces gaucoma enlarged globe buphthalmos.


Identification of New Genes. After the surgical procedure, the intraocular pressure in the affected eye returned to normal 16 mm Hg. The ongoing scarring over the conjunctival dissipation segment of the shunt may become too thick for the aqueous humor to filter through.

Corneal edema and haze is a common sign of the disease, as are horizontal or circumferential breaks in Descemet’s membrane termed “Haab’s striae” see Figures 3 and 4. Variants listed in the table have been provided by the authors. In some cases, pressure may rapidly build up in the eye, causing pain and redness symptomatic, or so-called “acute” angle closure.

Those at risk are advised to have a dilated eye examination at least once a year. Twenty-two eyes of 14 consecutive patients with primary congenital glaucoma who underwent combined trabeculotomy-trabeculectomy as the initial procedure between and were selected for review. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. A clear cornea is necessary for direct visualization of the anterior chamber structures during this procedure. In trabeculectomy, a section of trabecular meshwork and Schlemm’s canal is removed under a partial thickness sclera flap to create a wound fistula [ Morales et alChen et al a ].
