621 Possible Causes for Hereditary Glaucoma

  • Glaucoma

    Family Members with Glaucoma The most common type of glaucoma, primary open-angle glaucoma, is hereditary.[glaucoma.org] Glaucoma is a hereditary disease, therefore if a family member suffers from glaucoma it can make you more susceptible to developing the condition.[express.co.uk] Most risk factors of glaucoma such as age, hereditary risk and race cannot be prevented.[snec.com.sg]

  • Ectropion

    ARS is autosomal dominant, frequently hereditary, and bilateral.[aao.org] Glaucoma is noted in 50 percent of patients with ARS. 4 ICE syndrome is typically unilateral and is an acquired condition (serologic studies indicate an association with herpes[aao.org]

  • Normal-Tension Glaucoma

    hereditary optic neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] in several large families with hereditary glaucoma.[glaucoma.net] Marked but stable cupping may be hereditary.[patient.info]

  • Isolated Congenital Sclerocornea

    Glaucoma secondary to spherophakia/ectopia lentis and megalocornea Goniodysgenesis Hereditary glaucoma Iridocorneal endothelial syndrome Iridogoniodysgenesis Isolated congenital[se-atlas.de] A common reason for congenital clouding of the cornea is congenital glaucoma.[emedicine.medscape.com] Congenital microcoria Corneogoniodysgenesis Corneoiridogoniodysgenesis Distal monosomy 6p Essential iris atrophy Glaucoma associated with neural crest cell migration anomaly[se-atlas.de]

  • Exfoliation Syndrome

    […] and as newly formed iris capillaries in PEX, 24 therefore, vascular endothelial engagement might be a primary cause of glaucoma and PEX.[doi.org] A hereditary basis for pseudoexfoliation has been strongly suspected, although transmission across generations has been documented infrequently. 25 The disease has been reported[doi.org] […] pigment epithelium. 22 Amorphous masses are formed in the optic nerve in pseudoexfoliative glaucomatous atrophy. 23 Vascular involvement is seen as disc haemorrhages in glaucoma[doi.org]

  • Open-Angle Glaucoma

    Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) is a maternally inherited recessive disease rarely complicated with glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Race : People of African descent get glaucoma more frequently and at a younger age than Caucasians. Family history is important as some cases of glaucoma are hereditary.[emedicinehealth.com] Corneal thickness : Thin corneas are associated with a higher risk for glaucoma. Corneal thickness is measured by the eye doctor using specialized instruments.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Hereditary Corneal Dystrophy

    All cases had been erroneously diagnosed as and operated on for congenital glaucoma. The hereditary aspect of this association is discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Angle-closure glaucoma - An hereditary corneal dystrophy Factor Last reviewed for CCPS 18 July 2006.[clik.dva.gov.au] Most of the early authors classified this disease as congenital syphilitic interstitial keratitis, congential glaucoma, classical forms of hereditary dystrophy, or changes[healio.com]

  • Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome

    […] and as newly formed iris capillaries in PEX, 24 therefore, vascular endothelial engagement might be a primary cause of glaucoma and PEX.[doi.org] Marked but stable cupping may be hereditary.[patient.info] A hereditary basis for pseudoexfoliation has been strongly suspected, although transmission across generations has been documented infrequently. 25 The disease has been reported[doi.org]

  • Intumescent Cataract

    […] develops when the fibrillar material blocks the trabecular meshwork Epidemiology Patients tend to be over 60 years of age Geographic clustering suggests a hereditary pattern[medrounds.org] […] body Within the eye the fibrillar material comes from the lens capsule, iris, and ciliary body The zonules are weak in this condition Often asymmetric or even unilateral Glaucoma[medrounds.org] In Scandinavia for example pseudoexfoliation causes 75% of glaucoma Glaucoma develops in 22-82% of patients with exfoliative material Increased incidence of age related cataract[medrounds.org]
