Abstract Details


To report four patients (7 eyes) with Goldmann-Favre syndrome who developed angle closure glaucoma.


Department of Ophthalmology, Fattouma Bourguiba University Hospital, Monastir, Tunisia.


Four case reports.


The patients were aged between 24 and 34 years (three female patients and one male patient). The initial visual acuity varied between no light perception and 20/32. Slit-lamp examination showed shallow anterior chambers in 7 eyes with extensive peripheral anterior synechiae on gonioscopy. The intraocular pressure at presentation ranged between 23 and 36 mmHg and optic disc cupping between 0.6 and 1. On the other hand, there were ophthalmological features which were consistent with Goldmann-Favre Syndrome. Laser iridotomy and topical anti-glaucoma medications failed to control the intra-ocular pressure. Trabeculectomy was performed in all 7 eyes.


Angle closure glaucoma may be associated with Goldmann -Favre Syndrome. The pathophysiology remains not clear.
