CONCLUSIONS: The present case describes acute angle-closure glaucoma as an initial presentation of Coats' disease in adults. Clinicians should be aware that this unique presentation in Coats' disease can occur even without retinal detachment

The patient was diagnosed with bilateral acute angle-closure glaucoma (ACG) and was started on topical ocular hypotensive treatment. No systemic medications or cyclopeglic agents were prescribed. When we evaluated the patient 2 days after her initial presentation to the ER, the eye drops had adequately reduced and stabilized her IOP, and the. Angle-closure glaucoma (ACG) is a condition in which the iris is apposed to the trabecular meshwork at the angle of the anterior chamber of the eye. When the iris is pushed or pulled anteriorly to block the trabecular meshwork, the outflow of aqueous from the eye is blocked, which causes a rise in intraocular pressure (IOP) A study conducted on 116 cases of acute angle-closure glaucoma concluded that the delay in presentation and the time taken to end the acute episode was the most important factor in determining the final outcome of these patients Glaucoma is a nonspecific term used for several ocular diseases that ultimately result in increased intraocular pressure (IOP) and decreased visual acuity. Acute angle-closure glaucoma (AACG) is an ocular emergency and receives distinction due to its acute presentation, need for immediate treatment, and well-established anatomic pathology Topiramate-induced angle closure generally affects both eyes and presents with acute reduced vision, eye pain, eye redness, ocular fullness, headache, and/or nausea and vomiting. In general, these symptoms are less severe than seen in primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG)

  1. Angle-closure glaucoma (ACG) is a group of diseases in which there is reversible (appositional) or adhesional (synechial) closure of the anterior-chamber angle. The angle closure may occur in an acute or chronic form. In the acute form, the IOP rises rapidly as a result of relatively sudden blockage of the trabecular meshwork ™ by the iris.
  2. Acute angle closure glaucoma occurs when there is a relatively sudden blockage of the trabecular meshwork causing elevation of the intraocular pressure. One possible mechanism is the anterior bulging of the peripheral iris, occluding the trabecular meshwork and trapping aqueous humor inside the eye

Case Presentation: Bilateral Angle-Closure Glaucoma

  1. Acute angle-closure glaucoma is a serious eye condition that occurs when the fluid pressure inside your eye rises quickly. The usual symptoms are sudden, severe eye pain, a red eye and reduced or blurred vision. You may feel sick or be sick (vomit). Immediate treatment is needed to relieve symptoms and to prevent permanent loss of vision.
  2. Plateau Iris Syndrome and Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma: A Teaching Case Report | 1 | 1 Abstract Plateau iris syndrome (PIS) is one cause of acute angle closure glaucoma. An anteriorly rotated or abnormally oversized ciliary body occludes the ciliary sulcus, blocking access to the trabecular meshwork and resulting in elevated intraocular pressure
  3. Glaucoma is often, though not always, associated with increased intraocular pressure (IOP). Angle-closure glaucoma is a form of glaucoma characterized by narrowing or closure of the anterior chamber angle [ 2 ]. The normal anterior chamber angle provides drainage for the aqueous humor, the fluid that fills the eyeball
  4. Since the first report of this condition by Wisotsky et al. 3 in 1998, there have only been four other reports. 3 -6 Sun et al. 5 and Han et al. 6 each reported a case of bilateral angle-closure glaucoma; one case had central nervous system vasculitis and uncontrolled nephropathy, and the other had polyserositis
  5. Acute angle-closure glaucoma is an urgent but uncommon, dramatic symptomatic event with blurring of vision, painful red eye, headache, nausea, and vomiting. Diagnosis is made by noting high intra-ocular pressure, corneal oedema, shallow anterior chamber, and a closed angle on gonioscopy. Medical.
  6. Acute glaucoma classically presents with severe pain, redness, and reduced vision in the affected eye, and severe cases can also have systemic symptoms. We report three cases of acute glaucoma in elderly patients. The diagnosis of acute glaucoma in a patient who presents with sudden onset of a painful, red eye with reduced visual acuity, a hazy cornea, and a fixed, semi-dilated pupil is.

We are reporting a case of a 62-year-old male presenting with headache and blurry vision. His condition resolved with cessation of the presumed offending medication and urgent bilateral laser peripheral iridotomies since he failed medical therapy. This case presents a novel association between oxybutynin and bilateral acute angle-closure glaucoma (AACG) In this report, we describe a case of acute Harada disease presenting as unilateral acute angle-closure glaucoma with onset following sildenafil aided sexual intercourse. Case Report A previously healthy 32-year-old male patient presented with acute onset of headache and diminution of vision in his left eye 12 h prior to the presentation The presentation covered a wide variety of causes and cases of red eye in glaucoma, ranging from sight-threatening emergencies (acute angle closure) to mild iatrogenic red eye (this part of the talk also highlighted the wider range of preservative-free medications available for glaucoma treatment in Australia compared with New Zealand) The presentation detailed a wide variety of red-eye cases in glaucoma, ranging from sight-threatening emergencies (acute angle closure) to mild iatrogenic red eye (this part of the talk also highlighted the wider range of preservative-free medications available for glaucoma treatment in Australia compared with New Zealand) bilateral acute angle closure glaucoma and transient myopia Lee and colleagues9 present the case of a 27-year-old emmetropic, previously healthy woman who developed bilateral, acute, angle closure 4 days after beginning oral oseltamivir (75 mg twice daily) to treat the flu. This case is particularly interesting because of the relatively low.

intraocular pressure (IOP). We describe a case of a patient with refractory acute angle closure glaucoma and severe pain in whom emergency TSCP was undertaken 12 h after presentation, reducing the IOP from 68 to 10 mm Hg. Further, a patient with chronic angle closure glaucoma underwent TSCP, reducing the IOP from 78 to 14 mm Hg In acute closed-angle glaucoma. Results in increased IOP because of obstructed outflow of aqueous humor. However, acute closed-angle glaucoma typically involves sudden, complete, unilateral closure with pupil dilation stimulated by a dark environment, emotional stress, or mydriatic drugs. Assessment/Clinical Manifestations/Signs and Symptom Neovascular glaucoma (NVG) is a severe form of secondary glaucoma characterized by proliferation of fibrovascular tissue in the anterior chamber angle. Since Coats first noted new vessel formation on the iris (rubeosis iridis) in eyes with central retinal vein occlusion in 1906, this condition has been noted previously by names including hemorrhagic glaucoma, congestive glaucoma, thrombotic. In a case series, a 15-year‑old girl and a 24-year-old woman developed acute angle closure glaucoma following treatment with topiramate [not all routes stated]. Case 1: The girl presented to the emergency department with 1 day history of blurry vision and ocular discomfort in both eyes, not associated with headache, vomiting or nausea

Acute angle-closure glaucoma is an ocular emergency and is distinct due to its acute presentation, need for immediate treatment, and well-established anatomic pathology. Although some patients develop increased intraocular pressure after kidney transplantation, few patients are diagnosed with glaucoma The aims of treatment are to: Reduce intraocular pressure (IOP). Ease any symptoms. Prevent the development of, or the further progression of, glaucoma, and thus to preserve sight. Management of acute angle closure: Initial treatment in secondary care will include topical and intravenous drugs to reduce IOP, and to provide analgesia We present a case of bilateral acute angle closure glaucoma and myopic shift occurring within seven days of initiating therapy with topiramate for symptoms of alcohol dependence. Case presentation A 40 year old man was referred from the psychiatry department with complaints of severe pain, redness and sudden diminution of vision in both eyes.

Background. By 2020, 79.6 million people will have open and closure angle glaucoma, and this will be the second leading cause of blindness in the world. 1 Angle-closure glaucoma is characterized by narrowing or closure of the anterior chamber angle of the eye. Patients present with decreased vision, halos around lights, headache, severe eye pain, and vomiting Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve (or retina) and cause vision loss. The most common type is open-angle (wide angle, chronic simple) glaucoma, in which the drainage angle for fluid within the eye remains open, with less common types including closed-angle (narrow angle, acute congestive) glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma Secondary angle closure glaucoma by lupus choroidopathy as an initial presentation of systemic lupus erythematosus: a case report. Young Soo Han, Chan Min Yang, Sang Hoon Lee, Jae Ho Shin, Sang Woong Moon, Ja Heon Kang Acute angle-closure glaucoma is a vision-threatening process that must be rapidly identified by emergency care providers. What makes this presentation of disease reportable? This report highlights an unusual case of acute angle-closure glaucoma secondary to a phakic intraocular lens that could have been missed without awareness of this.

pressure secondary to angle closure may mimic those of the primary condition, thus it is important to be aware of this association as the symptoms typically resolve with cessation of the medication and management of the intraocular pressure. We present a case of bilateral acute angle closure glaucoma occurring within 10 days of initi Case 2: A 57-year-old patient with a history of hyperopia (+1.75 OU) was referred for acute angle-closure glaucoma.

Introduction. Acute primary angle closure (APAC) is a subtype of primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) that presents with sudden occlusion of the angle, resulting in a rapid increase in the intraocular pressure (IOP) to a very high level.1 2 Without immediate IOP control, permanent damage to the optic nerve will occur and lead to substantial decreased vision, including blindness.1 This. reported the first case of acute angle-closure glaucoma (AACG) associated with the use of topiramate. On September 2001, Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceuticals, the protagonists, inserted a black box warning indicating that 23 cases of AACG had been reported to their safety division, and physicians should be aware of this adverse ocular drug reaction It is also called acute glaucoma or narrow-angle glaucoma. Unlike open-angle glaucoma, angle-closure glaucoma is a result of the angle between the iris and cornea closing. Normal-Tension Glaucoma (NTG) Also called low-tension or normal-pressure glaucoma. In normal-tension glaucoma the optic nerve is damaged even though the eye pressure is not. Introduction. Glaucoma is currently the second leading cause of blindness worldwide. It affects over 60 million people, a number expected to increase to nearly 80 million by 2020 (Quigley & Broman 2006).Primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) is a type of glaucoma estimated to affect approximately 26% of the glaucoma population; however, PACG is responsible for nearly half the cases of glaucoma.

Background . Angle closure glaucoma (ACG) whether primary or secondary lens induced has rare occurrence in cases with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Method . Five patients with history of diminished vision, ocular pain, and nyctalopia were clinically evaluated. Four patients had unilateral presentations of circumciliary congestion, corneal edema, and high intraocular pressure (IOP), while one had. acute angle closure e.g. neovascular glaucoma and phacomorphic glaucoma were excluded. The patients were identified from the hospital admission record to the eye ward of both hospitals. Demographic data and ocular data during the presentation were obtained from patients' medical record. Ocular data at presentation such a Accordingly, acute primary angle closure was diagnosed. Miotics and ocular hypotensive drugs were prescribed, but the symptoms continued to worsen over the 3-d treatment course. Further imaging examinations ( i.e. , anterior segment photography and ultrasonography) indicated a diagnosis of bilateral posterior scleritis

Medication-induced acute angle-closure glaucoma: a case

Case presentation: A 39-year-old Caucasian man presented with acute angle-closure glaucoma; he initially presented with intractable headaches after being treated with an escalating dose of topiramate. Clinical signs included elevated intraocular pressure that was initially refractory to treatment, shallow anterior chambers, and extensive. Scleritis is a rare disease and the incidence of bilateral posterior scleritis is even rarer. Unfortunately, misdiagnosis of the latter is common due to its insidious onset, atypical symptoms, and varied manifestations. We report here a case of bilateral posterior scleritis that presented with acute eye pain and intraocular hypertension, and was initially misdiagnosed as acute primary angle. Abstract. Purpose To report the first case of presumed bilateral acute angle closure (AAC) secondary to ingestion of the dietary supplement, methyl-sulfonyl-methane (MSM). Patient A 35-year-old.
