BLANCO GONZALEZ, Yanileidy et al. Glaucoma in Rieger's anomaly. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2013, vol.26, suppl.1, pp.679-687. ISSN 0864-2176.

A clinical case, who was diagnosed with Rieger's anomaly with later embriotoxon, iridocorneal adhesions, corectopia, sectoral atrophy of the iris, goniodysgenesis and bilateral glaucoma unrelated to systemic alterations, was described. The performance of trabeculo-trabeculectomy with Mitomycin C was decided for both eyes. The case remained compensated till one year after surgery, when there occurs thinning of the filtration bulla and aqueous humor discharge from the left eye in addition to remarkable decrease of intraocular pressure. It was then decided to reconstruct the filtering bulla. One month after surgery, the intraocular pressure began rising and they are presently compensated with the use of dorzolamide drops.

Keywords : Rieger's anomaly; Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome; anterior segment dysgenesis.
