Angle-Closure Glaucoma Secondary to Ciliary Body Swelling

Abstract

Abstract Two cases of unilateral angle-closure glaucoma were accompanied by marked myopia and dramatic shallowing of the anterior chamber. Between attacks the anterior chambers were deep. The cause may be a spasm and swelling of the ciliary body. References 1. Levene R: A new concept of malignant glaucoma . Arch Ophthalmol 87:497-506, 1972.Crossref 2.
