Sažetak
Background Etiopathogenesis of primary open angle glaucoma is unclear. The increased risk of glaucoma in first-degree relatives has long been recognized. Frequency for manifestation of the disease is 10-30%. The aim of this study was to estimate certain differences in dermatoglyphics of the digito-palmar complex between those tree groups of subjects. Material and Methods Digito-palmar dermatoglyphs were already used to determine hereditary base of many diseases and it was the reason for investigation of their qualitative and quantitative traits in patients with glaucoma (22 males and 23 females), their first-degree relatives (19 males and 23 females) in comparison to a group of phenotypically healthy controls (52 males and 56 females). Results The results pointed a connection between dermatoglyphic traits of the digito-palmar complex in patients with glaucoma and the same traits of their first-degree relatives. There is a possible discrimination of patients and their first-degree relatives from phenotypically healthy controls, too. Conclusion It is necessary for all family members without manifestation of the disease to make a clinical examination that enables the prevention and early discovery of illness.
