MARCON, Italo Mundialino et al. Topiramate versus Angle- Closure Glaucoma. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2008, vol.67, n.1, pp.39-41. ISSN 1982-8551.

Topiramate is a kind of sulfamate-substituted monosaccharide of oral presentation to be used primarily as an anticonvulsant and it doesn't have structural relation with any other antiepileptic agents. This wide range antiepileptic drug has been used in the management of migraine, depression and neuropathic pain. Since it was approved as an anticonvulsant, many reports related to ophthalmological adverse effects have been published. The pathological findings include secondary angle closure glaucoma, transitory myopia, ocular hyperemia, uveal effusions, with or without mydriasis.

Keywords : Glaucoma, angle-closure; Myopia; Glaucoma [chemically induced]; Ocular hypertension; Vision disorders; Case reports.
