Malignant glaucoma is a disease process in which entire anterior chamber becomes uniformly shallow and elevates intraocular pressure. Classically, this has been described as limited to cases occurring following glaucoma surgery. Subsequently, association with trauma, inflammation, and the use of miotic agents, as well as spontaneous occurrence have also been noted. We have experienced one case of bilateral malignant glaucoma associated with ciliochoroidal detachment which was detected by ultrasoundbiomi-croscopy in a 55-year-old male. The episode followed the use of a strong miotic(pilocarpine hydrochloride 4%) and laser iridotomy for acute angle closure glaucoma. We report this case with review of available literature.
