Inflammatory ocular hypertension syndrome (IOHS) overlaps with glaucoma but may be transient.


Features of inflammatory ocular hypertension syndrome:

(1) acute or recurrent episodes of ocular inflammation

(2) acute and transient increase in intraocular pressure

(3) responds to therapy with anti-inflammatory drugs and/or organism-appropriate antimicrobial therapy


The increase pressure may affect one or both eyes.


The ocular inflammation may be diagnosed as:

(1) uveitis

(2) retinochoroiditis

(3) endophthalmitis


Chronic ocular infections that cause increased intraocular pressures tend to be included with the glaucomas.
