Bilateral iridocorneal endothelial syndrome presented as Cogan-Reese and Chandler's syndrome

J Glaucoma. 1996 Feb;5(1):60-2.


Purpose: Iridocorneal endothelial (ICE) syndrome includes Chandler's syndrome, essential iris atrophy, and the Cogan Reese syndrome. The purpose of this article is to describe a rare case with two forms of the syndrome simultaneously.

Methods: A case of Cogan Reese syndrome in one eye and Chandler's syndrome in the fellow eye is reported.

Results: During 5 years of follow-up only slight progression, manifested in episodes of blurred vision, occurred because of corneal changes. Glaucoma did not develop.

Conclusion: ICE syndrome is considered as unilateral, although cases of bilateral involvement of the same variant have been described. But a simultaneous presentation of two different forms might occur, as in this patient.
