Cytological diagnosis of phacolytic glaucoma utilizing millipore filtration of the aqueous

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Phacolytic glaucoma may result in subtle and bizarre physical signs, and diagnosis may be correspondingly difficult, but correct clinical evaluation often enables an otherwise doomed eye to be saved. A clinically and histopathologically documented case of phacolytic glaucoma has been presented, in which cytological study of an aqueous filtrate revealed characteristic macrophages. It is concluded that the Millipore filtration technique of cytological analysis may provide useful and benign assistance in diagnosing phacolytic glaucoma.
