Here, we report a rare case of a 47-year-old man presenting with idiopathic retinal vasculitis, aneurysm, and neuroretinitis (IRVAN) syndrome combined with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). He was treated with retinal photocoagulation combined with intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering therapy. At the 1-year follow-up, the patient's vision had not decreased and the IOP was well controlled. The abnormality of this case is the nonperfusion of macular deep capillary. Many studies support that POAG has no effects on the ischemia of deep capillary plexus. This case suggests that ischemia in the deep capillary plexus should be considered in IRVAN syndrome.
