Abstract

This is a case report of a 24 years old male patient of juvenile onset glaucoma of Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS) with choroidal hemangioma. Glaucoma was uncontrolled on maximum antiglaucoma medications. Ahmed Glaucoma valve was implanted which later on complicated with hypertensive phase although it resolved with needling of the bleb. The case highlights that AGV implantation is a viable option for management of juvenile onset glaucoma of SWS but can be associated with reversible complications.
