Infantile Glaucoma: Introduction
Infantile Glaucoma: Primary infantile glaucoma is a rare developmental defect in the iridocorneal filtration angle of the anterior chamber that causes a relative obstruction of egress of aqueous fluid from the eye. This obstruction can cause increases in the intraocular pressure, which if untreated can damage the optic nerve.
