A 42-year-old female patient has been referred for high intraocular pressure (IOP) in both eyes (BE). Examination revealed dilated, tortuous conjunctival, and episcleral vessels in BE with no apparent cause, also the patient had advanced glaucomatous damage in the left eye (LE). A diagnosis of bilateral idiopathic elevated episcleral venous pressure with secondary open-angle glaucoma (Radius Maumenee syndrome) was made. She was treated with aqueous suppressants in BE and underwent Partial diode cyclophotocoagulation in LE for control of high IOP. Nearly 50–55 cases have been reported till now. We publish here as this is a rare entity; also we discuss certain management controversies and provide literature review about this entity.
