The history presented by this case, that of retinal separation followed by acute attacks of glaucoma, is characteristic of intraocular growths. The features of special interest are the long interval, two years, during which the eye was quiet, the occurrence of complete corneal infiltration, and finally, the spontaneous rupture of the cornea.
