[The Rieger syndrome. A clinical study. A study of 4 generations in one family with the Rieger syndrome].Oftalmologia. 1997; 41(3):234-7.O
Rieger syndrome is a rare disease with autosomal dominant inheritance (4q25-4q27) characterised by the presence of ocular and extraocular abnormalities. We present a family with Rieger syndrome on four generations, pointing the ocular and extraocular abnormalities. The most frequent complication is secondary glaucoma (50-60% of all cases) and the efficient treatment consists in utilising the betablockers and/or filtering operations with the possibility of antimetabolites help.
