To describe a case of photoreceptor outer segment glaucoma (Schwartz-Matsuo syndrome) with electron microscopic evidence of photoreceptor outer segments in the trabecular meshwork (TM).
This is a clinicopathologic case report.
A 48-year-old Filipino man.
Specimens of aqueous humor and TM in a clinical case of Schwartz-Matsuo syndrome were examined by electron microscopy.
Electron microscopy showed evidence of retinal photoreceptor outer-segments in both an aqueous humor and a TM specimen.
Schwartz-Matsuo syndrome is associated with the presence of photoreceptor outer segments in the TM.
