AAA syndrome or Allgrove syndrome is a rare multisystem disorder. The ocular manifestations reported in the literature include alacrima, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, corneal melts, lacrimal gland atrophy, pupillary abnormalities, accommodative dysregulation, amblyopia, and optic atrophy. We report here the occurrence of glaucoma in a patient with AAA syndrome, which has not been reported earlier, and also discuss the multiple difficulties in managing glaucoma in the presence of the underlying ocular and systemic conditions.
