Uveitic glaucoma (UG) is a potentially blinding complication of intraocular inflammation and is one of the most common causes of secondary glaucoma in pediatric ophthalmology. Overall management of UG is often challenging and requires a multidisciplinary assessment and careful follow-up. The overlap with steroid-induced glaucoma (SIG) is quite common, as well as the failure of medical and surgical therapy; nevertheless, few recent papers have dealt with this topic. We review the features and the clinical approach to UG in childhood, discussing the treatments available in the pediatric population.

Abstract

Uveitic glaucoma (UG) is a potentially blinding complication of intraocular inflammation and is one of the most common causes of secondary glaucoma in pediatric ophthalmology. Overall management of UG is often challenging and requires a multidisciplinary assessment and careful follow-up. The overlap with steroid-induced glaucoma (SIG) is quite common, as well as the failure of medical and surgical therapy; nevertheless, few recent papers have dealt with this topic. We review the features and the clinical approach to UG in childhood, discussing the treatments available in the pediatric population.
