In the report of the American Ophthalmological Society in the August issue (Arch. Ophth.34:163, 1945) the following remarks were omitted from the discussion on the paper by Dr. Algernon Reese, entitled "Deep Chamber Glaucoma Due to Formation of a Cuticular Product in the Filtration Angle," (bottom of the first column, continuing the discussions by Dr. Verhoeff) :
That bullous keratitis and the related condition, pannus degenerativus, occur in many of the eyes such as Dr. Reese has described is of no significance in regard to the character of the original changes in the ligament but does indicate that the glaucoma was in an advanced stage and had damaged the corneal endothelium. Therefore, while the occurrence of bullous keratitis suggests that alteration of the endothelium led to the formation of elastic membrane in the angle, it also suggests that this formation occurred after the glaucoma had been long established.
