Several studies demonstrated that genetically factors seem to influence the onset and progression of juvenile glaucoma as showed by different studies which identified linkage with chromosome #3q1,2,3 and #1g21-g31.4 Even if clearly is possible identify inherited factors in open angle chronic glaucoma (OACG) until now no candidate genes have been proposed for this disease.
