Abstract

We report a case of anterior uveitis and unilateral recalcitrant glaucoma in an immunocompromised 6-year-old boy diagnosed with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome who presented with elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), mild anterior uveitis, and unilateral acute glaucoma. Polymerase chain reaction from the aqueous was positive for cytomegalovirus (CMV). After initially responding to ganciclovir, the IOP rose again. With worsening optic nerve status, the patient underwent glaucoma filtration surgery with mitomycin C, and a postoperative regimen for CMV retinitis was initiated.
