Congenital glaucoma and its inheritance.

Abstract

Congenital glaucoma may be associated, secondary or primary. Primary congenital glaucoma is due to the persistance in the anterior chamber angle of embryonic mesodermal tissue. Its inheritance is autosomal-recessive, sex-controlled and variable in penetrance. The treatment is surgical, goniotomy being as good as trabeculotomy.
