Radius–Maumenee syndrome (SRM) is an idiopathic uncommon disorder that occurs with a dilation of the episcleral vessels and an increase in intraocular pressure (IOP). Most cases of dilated episcleral vessels can be attributed to carotid-cavernous-sinus fistula, cavernous sinus thrombosis, dural arteriovenous shunt, superior vena cava syndrome, Sturge–Weber syndrome, or Obstructive orbital lesions. There are rare cases without an underlying cause. It is a syndrome that constitutes a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The aim of our work was to report a case of Radius–Maumenee syndrome and to describe the diagnostic procedure for this relatively rare condition.
