Newborn primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) is an important subtype of PCG. Affected patients manifest specific signs that facilitate its recognition at birth and become important in the determination of appropriate treatment for this severe expression of PCG. Objective clinical evidence supports the occurrence of spontaneous resolution of PCG, explanation for which is unknown. Its mechanism could be related to continued postnatal development of the angle structures in eyes possessing milder angle abnormalities. The anterior segment findings are similar to those of patients with treated PCG such as normal intraocular pressures (IOPs), the optic nerve damage is stable, and filtration angles possess mild or moderate abnormalities. We describe a case of spontaneously resolved PCG in an 8 yearold female presenting with large cornea, Haab's striae, and normal IOP in one eye. Literature review shows limited data about such a case report being described from the Indian subcontinent.
