4,237 Possible Causes for Glaucoma, Melanin Dispersion in Iris, Transillumination of the Iris

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    (EG; n 83) as well as in 251 control patients aged 70 years or older with primary open-angle glaucoma (PG; n 40), normal tension glaucoma (NG; n 54), and cataract (CT; n[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The melanin dispersion is from atrophy of the iris pigment epithelium. Actual pseudoexfoliative material may be noted on the TM.[eyewiki.aao.org] Furthermore, prominent concentric, circular iris transillumination (grade 3) was only observed in XFS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome

    In contrast, there were less elastotic fibers in the lamina cribrosa from patients with primary open-angle glaucoma compared with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripapillary atrophy and iris sphincter region transillumination Melanin dispersion associated with pupillary dilation Poor mydriasis, asymmetric pupil sizes Melanin dispersion[optometricmanagement.com] Loss of iris pigment and its deposition throughout the anterior segment are refl ected in iris sphincter region transillumination defects, loss of the pupillary ruff, pigment[tmj.ro]

  • Iris Atrophy

    A case of chronic simple glaucoma associated with 'moth-eaten-like' iris atrophy is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinically the iris would show hypopigmentation without transillumination defects. B. Iris pigment epithelial atrophy in diabetes mellitus.[entokey.com] The unusual feature in this case was that, the patient was a 36-year-old male presenting with iris atrophy, corneal oedema and uniocular glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
