The article determines the condition of a 9-year-old patient presented with bilateral misshaped pupils and a history of glaucoma. An image of the left and right eyes of the patient is presented. Anterior segment examination showed visible Schwalbe's lines, circumferential iris stromal attachments to Schwalbe's line, smooth uniform irides, and reactive slit-shaped pupils that dilated normally with mydritics. Results of optic nerve examinations showed bilateral glaucomatous cupping.
