Summaries for Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma

Disease Ontology : 12 An angle-closure glaucoma characterized by closure of the anterior chamber angle by an intrinsic defect such that aqueous outflow is blocked and the intraocular pressure becomes inappropriately elevated leading to optic nerve damage and visual field loss. Primary angle-closure glaucoma has symptom progressive peripheral vision loss, decreased vision, and pain, redness, and headache in acute cases. Primary angle closure glaucoma can be caused by anatomically narrow angle, defects in the trabecular meshwork, and iris abnormalities. Primary angle-closure glaucoma has a strong genetic component.

MalaCards based summary : Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma, also known as primary angle closure glaucoma, is related to acute closed-angle glaucoma and intraocular pressure quantitative trait locus, and has symptoms including progressive peripheral vision loss An important gene associated with Primary Angle-Closure Glaucoma is MYOC (Myocilin), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Tropisetron Pathway, Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics. The drugs Pilocarpine and Travoprost have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, endothelial and retina, and related phenotypes are Resistant to vaccinia virus (VACV-A4L) infection and immune system
