Glaucomatocyclitic crisis, also known as the Posner-Schlossman syndrome (PSS), is a self-limiting, rare disease that was first described by Posner and Schlossman in 1948 .
These patients had at least one typical unilateral ocular hypertensive episode that fulfilled the criteria of glaucomatocyclitic crisis (Table 2, Figures 1 and 2) without the angle feature.
Glaucomatocyclitic crisis was first reported and described by Posner and Schlossman decades ago [1, 3].
established a positive association between glaucomatocyclitic crisis and primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) in an observation of eleven patients.
To the best of our knowledge, this case series is the first to present glaucomatocyclitic crisis episodes in individuals with a narrow angle/angle closure.
