Abstract

PURPOSE:

Iridocorneal endothelial (ICE) syndrome includes Chandler's syndrome, essential iris atrophy, and the Cogan Reese syndrome. The purpose of this article is to describe a rare case with two forms of the syndrome simultaneously.

METHODS:

A case of Cogan Reese syndrome in one eye and Chandler's syndrome in the fellow eye is reported.

RESULTS:

During 5 years of follow-up only slight progression, manifested in episodes of blurred vision, occurred because of corneal changes. Glaucoma did not develop.

CONCLUSION:

ICE syndrome is considered as unilateral, although cases of bilateral involvement of the same variant have been described. But a simultaneous presentation of two different forms might occur, as in this patient.
