  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A male Infant was born at the gestational age of 27 weeks and with the birthweight of 1,038g. Both eyes developed retinopathy of prematurity and received by panretinal photocoagulation using a diode laser 6 to 8 weeks after birth. Ring-shaped fibrous proliferation developed posterior to the lens. Angle-closure glaucoma developed in both eyes 6months after birth. The intraocular pressure was normalized following pars plana lensectomy. There is a possibility that the angle-closure glaucoma was secondary to anterior displacement of the lens by the contracture of retrolental membrane and to malignant glaucoma after blockage of aquoues flow from the posterior to anterior chamber.
