Childhood glaucoma is a potentially blinding disease and poses crucial challenges in both diagnosis and management. We report a rare case of secondary glaucoma associated with nonacquired ocular anomalies in a 3-month infant with a family history of pigmentary glaucoma (PG) in two generations presenting as bilateral buphthalmos associated with ectropion uveae, microspherophakia, and high myopia. The child was successfully managed by combined trabeculotomy and MMC-augmented trabeculectomy with stabilized IOP at 12 months follow-up.
