RGD uses the Human Disease Ontology (DO, for disease curation across species. RGD automatically downloads each new release of the ontology on a monthly basis. Some additional terms which are required for RGD's curation purposes but are not currently covered in the official version of DO have been added. As corresponding terms are added to DO, these custom terms are retired and the DO terms substituted in existing annotations and subsequently used for curation.

Accession:DOID:1687 term browser browse the term
Definition:A glaucoma characterized by narrowing of the anterior chamber angle secondary to neovascularization along the iris and iridocorneal angle such that the aqueous fluid outflow is blocked and intraocular pressure becomes inappropriately elevated leading to optic nerve damage and visual field loss. Neovascular glaucoma has_symptom progressive peripheral vision loss, decreased vision, and pain, redness, and headache in acute cases. Neovascular glaucoma can be related to abnormal angiogenesis with ischemic retinal diseases, inflammation, diabetes mellitus, intraocular malignancy, and autoinmmune diseases. (DO)
Synonyms:exact_synonym: neovascular glaucomas;   secondary angle-closure glaucoma with rubeosis
 primary_id: MESH:D015355
