Abstract

Elevation of intra-ocular pressure (IOP) and glaucoma can occur secondary to intra-ocular tumors. This is determined by the tumor type and location of the tumor. Both closed and open angle glaucoma are associated with intra-ocular tumors. Elevated IOP is known to occur with both primary intra-ocular tumors and secondary metastases. The incidence is estimated to be approximately in 3-7.5% of patients with intraocular tumors. Glaucoma secondary to intra-ocular tumors often poses difficult management issues both in immediate and in long term. Any patient with unilateral elevation of IOP should raise suspicion for glaucoma secondary to intraocular malignancy. Even after successful tumor ablation, glaucoma and its deleterious effects persist. It is important to recognize glaucoma as a vision threatening complication of intra-ocular tumors in both adults and children.
