Primär kongenitales Glaukom

  • M. Bruce Shields
  • Günter Karl Krieglstein


Wie bereits in Kap. 8 angesprochen, können die Glaukome der friihen Kiüheit in 3 Gruppen unterteilt werden: 1. primär kongenitales Glaukom, wobei eine Entwicklungsstörung der Kammerwinkelregion zur Verlegung der physiologischen Abflußwege ohne zusätzliche okuläre oder allgemeine Anomalien führt; 2. entwicklungsbedingte Glaukome mit weiteren Anomalien, wobei eine Fehlbildung der Kammerwinkelbucht das Glaukom bedingt, aber andere okuläre und allgemeine Anomalien hinzukommen, und 3.
