• A case of malignant glaucoma that developed in a patient with primary open-angle glaucoma is described. The malignant course was induced during the immediate postoperative period by the inadvertent use of miotics. The malignant course was successfully managed by osmotic agents, acetazolamide, cycloplegics, mydriatics, and topical steroids.
