A case of 37 years old woman with a classic form of Cogan-Reese iris naevus syndrome is presented. Closure angle glaucoma, being a part of syndrome, with glaucomatous disc damage was initially treated with drugs (betaxolol, trusopt) without effective IOP decrease. A surgery was performed (goniotrepanatio by Fronimopoulos modified by Palmberg, but without iridectomy), 5 fluorouracil subconjunctival injections were given to the patient postoperatively for 5 days. We received a good IOP control on the level of 12 mm Hg. The visual acuity was 1.0 after surgical procedure. We wanted to present this case because of its rarity and a typical surgical procedure (without applying iridectomy).
