Abstract: We report a case of a 5-year-old girl with persistent fetal vasculature who presented with unilateral acute angle closure caused by aqueous misdirection syndrome that was apparently associated with regression of cycloplegia. Initial treatment with topical steroids, anti-glaucomatous drops, and atropine showed insufficient control of the intraocular pressure (IOP). Surgical treatment with lensectomy and vitrectomy resulted in satisfactory IOP control and no complications at the 6-month follow-up.
