  • Congenital glaucoma part2; developmental glaucoma

    1. 1. DEVELOPMENTAL GLAUCOMA Dr. Nidhi Thaker
    2. 2. • Primary glaucomas with associated abnormalities • All of the primary glaucomas that have associated ocular abnormalities to be forms of anterior segment dysgenesis. • Neurocristopathies • Anterior segment dysgeneses are attributed to defects in neural crest migration or differentiation
    3. 3. 1. IRIDODYSGENESIS a. Aniridiab b. Congenital iris ectropion syndrome c. Iridotrabecular dysgenesis (iris hypoplasia) 2. CORNEODYSGENESIS (IRIDOCORNEODYSGENESIS) a. Axenfeld-Rieger anomaly b. Peters anomaly d. Sclerocornea e. Congenital hereditary endothelial dystrophy f. Posterior polymorphous dystrophy g. Megalocornea
    5. 5. Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome • Three Eponyms: (A) Axenfeld Anomaly : Limited to peripheral anterior segment defects (B) Rieger Anomaly: Peripheral abnormalities with additional changes in the iris (C) Rieger Syndrome: Ocular anomalies plus systemic developmental defects
    6. 6. 1. Partial retention of the primordial endothelium (e) on the iris (i) and anterior chamber angle (aca); 2. Incomplete posterior recession of peripheral uvea from trabecular meshwork (tm); 3. Abnormal differentiation between corneal and chamber angle endothelium with a prominent, anteriorly displaced schwalbe line (SL). 4. Development of tissue strands from retained endothelium crossing the anterior chamber angle
    7. 7. • Anterior Chamber Cleavage Syndrome • Mesodermal Dysgenesis Of The Cornea And Iris
    8. 8. • Contraction of retained endothelium with iris changes of corectopia (c), ectropion uvea (eu), and iris atrophy (ia), which may continue after birth; a tissue strand (ts) can also be seen. • Incomplete development of trabecular meshwork and Schlemm canal (SC); continued traction on the iris with possible secondary ischemia leads to hole formation (h).
    9. 9. General Features • Bilateral • Frequent family history of the disorder, with an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance • No sex predilection • Frequent systemic developmental defects • High incidence of associated glaucoma • Age :birth to adulthood, with most cases recognized in infancy or childhood
    10. 10. Ocular Features CORNEA • Prominent, anteriorly displaced schwalbe line. • White line on the posterior cornea near the limbus. • Incomplete, usually limited to the temporal quadrant; Sometimes 360 degree ; only gonioscopic finding • Occasional variation in the overall size (i.e, Megalocornea or, less often, microcornea) or shape of the cornea • Congenital opacities of the central cornea
    11. 11. • Anterior Chamber Angle • Gonioscopic examination; 1. Prominent schwalbe line 2. Iridocorneal adhesions 3. The anterior chamber angle is open and the trabecular meshwork is visible, but the scleral spur is typically obscured by peripheral iris, which inserts into the posterior portion of the meshwork
    12. 12. •Iris • Mild stromal thinning to marked atrophy with hole formation, • Corectopia • Ectropion uveae. • When corectopia is present, the pupil is usually displaced toward a prominent peripheral tissue strand the atrophy and hole formation typically occur in the quadrant away from the direction of the corectopia.
    13. 13. Other ocular abnormalities • Strabismus • Limbal dermoids • Corneal pannus • Cataracts • Congenital ectropion uveae • Congenital pupillary-iris-lens membrane • Peripheral spokelike transillumination defects of the iris • Retinal detachment • Macular degeneration • Chorioretinal colobomas • Choroidal hypoplasia • Hypoplasia of the optic nerve heads
    14. 14. • Glaucoma • More than one half of the patients with the axenfeld-rieger syndrome develop glaucoma. • Childhood or young adulthood. • The high insertion of peripheral iris into the trabecular meshwork, appears to be more pronounced in those eyes with glaucoma • The proposed mechanism of glaucoma in these cases relates to abnormalities of the trabecular meshwork and schlemm canal
    15. 15. Systemic Features • Dental anomalies: Microdontia Hypodentia Oligodontia
    16. 16. Facial anomalies : A receding upper lip and prominent lower lip Hypertelorism Maxillary hypoplasia with flattening of the midface Telecanthus A broad flat nose Micrognathia  mandibular prognathism

    18. 18. Genetic Linkage • Chromosomes :4q25, 6p25, and 13q14. • Type 1 :Pitx2 on 4q25 • Type 2: RIEG2 on 13q14 • Type 3: FOXC1 on 6p25
    19. 19. Differential Diagnosis 1. Iridocorneal Endothelial (ICE) Syndrom* 2. Posterior Polymorphous Corneal Dystrophy 3. Peters anomaly 4. Aniridia 5. Oculodentodigital Dysplasia 6. Ectopia Lentis et Pupillae 7. Congenital Microcoria and Myopia
    20. 20. Peters Anomaly • Defect in the neural crest cell migration in the 6 – 8th wk of fetal development • Present at birth • Usually bilateral • Most cases are sporadic/autosomal recessive/ autosomal dominant transmission • Defects of the ear and auditory system, orofacial system, heart, genitourinary system, spine, and musculoskeletal system • Can be caused by mutation in the PAX6, PITX2, CYP1B1, or FOXC1
    21. 21. Clinicopathologic Features • Central corneal abnormality : hallmark 1. Defect in the descemet membrane and corneal endothelium with thinning and opacification of the corresponding area of corneal stroma 2. Iris adhesions 3. Bowman layer absent centrally
    22. 22. I. In Peters anomaly not associated with keratolenticular contact or cataract II. Peters anomaly associated with keratolenticular contact or cataract III. Peters anomaly associated with Axenfeld- Rieger syndrome
    23. 23. Glaucoma • 50% pts • Infantile glaucoma • Mechanism: o Peripheral anterior synechiae formation o Incomplete development of trabecular meshwork and schlemm canal
    24. 24. Systemic association • Craniofacial anomalies • CNS anomalies • Fetal alcohol syndrome • Chromosomal abnormaalities • ‘peter plus’ syndrome: o Short-limbed dwarfism o Cleft lip/palate o Learning difficulties

    27. 27. Classification AD 2/3rd No systemic complication genotype+= phenotype sporadic 1/3rd PAX6 MUTATION WAGAR SYNDROME/ Miller synd AR 1% Gillespie syndrome Cerebellar ataxia + MR
    28. 28. Clinicopathologic Features Iris • Aniridia: variable severity • Iris and retinal fluorescein : abnormal iris vascular remodeling that resulted in incomplete iris collarettes and decreased retinal foveal avascular zones
    29. 29. Lids:MGD Cornea: • Corneal pannus and opacity begin in the peripheral cornea • Microcornea , sclerocornea • Iridocorneal and keratolenticular adhesions • High CCT • Epibulbar dermoid
    30. 30. Lens • Localized congenital opacities • progressive • Subluxation (superior)or congenitally absent, or it may be reabsorbed
    31. 31. Fundus • Foveal Hypoplasia, optic nerve hypoplasia, choroidal coloboma • Poor visual acuity and nystagmus • Spectral-domain OCT can be used to confirm the presence of foveal hypoplasia in eyes with aniridia, and this correlates well with visual acuity independent of the iris rim width
    32. 32. Glaucoma • 75% Pts • late childhood and adolescence Mechanism: synechial angle closure secondary to the pulling of the rudimentary iris tissue by contraction of pre exsisting fibres Glaucoma in aniridia usually develops after rudimentary iris stump rotates anteriorly to progressively cover the trabecular meshwork
