Acute Visual Loss due to Acute Angle-Closure Glaucoma after Kidney Transplantation

Acute angle-closure glaucoma is an ocular emergency and is distinct due to its acute presentation, need for immediate treatment, and well-established anatomic pathology. Although some patients develop increased intraocular pressure after kidney transplantation, few patients are diagnosed with glaucoma. Most glaucoma that appears after kidney transplantation is of the open-angle type and is probably associated with steroid treatment. Acute angleclosure glaucoma after kidney transplantation is rare. We report a case of acute angle-closure glaucoma, suggested to be steroid independent that developed after kidney transplantation and resulted in progression to permanent visual loss.
