Julio Daniel Grigera, Emilio Daniel Grigera
We report a case of a 49-year-old female who presented to the emergency department with blurred vision and vomiting, hours after taking two tablets of 250 mg of acetazolamide. The anterior chamber was bilaterally flat, with normal intraocular pressure in both eyes. An ultrasound biomicroscopic (UBM) examination showed bilateral ciliary effusion and complete appositional angle closure in all quadrants. Acetazolamide-induced bilateral angle closure was diagnosed. Steroid and cycloplegic therapy were initiated, and acetazolamide was discontinued...

BACKGROUND: Indocyanine green video-angiography (ICG-V) is commonly used for intraoperative confirmation of aneurysm obliteration following clipping. However, direct puncture of the aneurysm wall occasionally results in blood leakage in patients for whom ICG-V has indicated complete closure. Therefore, the present study aimed to determine the reliability of ICG-V for confirming complete aneurysm closure, and to elucidate the factors underlying aneurysm obliteration and the occurrence of false-negative ICG-V findings...

Purpose: Latanoprost has become one of the most widely prescribed topical antihypertensive medications in recent years. Yet there have been few reports of secondary iris pigment epithelial (IPE) and ciliary body (CB) cyst formation to date and none, to our knowledge, reported in eyes predisposed to primary angle closure. Methods: We report the first documented case of bilateral IPE and CB cysts in a hypermetropic patient with prior laser peripheral iridotomies (LPIs) as a rare, delayed side effect of topical Latanoprost treatment...

Cerebro-costo-mandibular syndrome is a rare hereditary disorder characterised by micrognathia, posterior rib gaps, and secondary developmental delay. Patients often require ventilation and feeding support throughout life. We describe the first reported ophthalmic findings of CCMS and propose that defects in choroidal permeability lead to chronic macular oedema and refractory aqueous misdirection syndrome. Here we discuss the medical and surgical management concerns of recurrent angle closure and raised intraocular pressure in a CCMS patient...

Acute primary angle closure glaucoma (APACG) is an ophthalmic emergency that may lead to irreversible blindness. Although efforts were made to control intraocular pressure, disease progression still existed. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS OCT) may provide a new insight into mechanism of APACG. In order to seek out associated factors by AS OCT, We compared anterior segment parameters between 74 APACG and 48 normal eyes. Analysis of variance, principle component analysis and logistic regression were used...

The anterior chamber (AC) and posterior chamber (PC) of the eye are connected through the pupil and are filled with aqueous humour. The aqueous flows from the posterior to the AC at an approximately constant rate, and the intraocular pressure is governed by this rate and the resistance to aqueous outflow. In some patients the iris and lens come into contact, leading to pressure build-up in the PC, peripheral axial shallowing of the AC and, possibly, to angle-closure glaucoma. This can lead to blindness, which may be prevented by surgically creating an iridotomy, that is a hole through the iris to facilitate the flow from the posterior to the AC...
