Sažetak
In our opinion, patients treated for vitiligo should be regularly subjected gto complete ophthalmologic examination with special reference to šrimary open angle glaucoma (POAG) diagnosis, irrespective of age, sex, severity, localization and duration of the disease. This is supported by the fact that glaucoma tends to progress with age and duration of vitiligo, and leads to blindness and reduced working ability if left untereated. Although the present study included a relatively small patient sample and short period of examination (pilot study), it strongly indicated that this association was not accidental. Additional studies including larger samples of vitiligo and glaucoma patients should provide definitive answer and conclusions on the association of these two diseases. Consequently, vitiligo and glaucoma could be connected with several pathomechanisms and/or risk factors that have not yet been fully clarified. This clinical observation and our conclusions confirmed the hypothesis, however, these two diseases may also be underllain by some systemic, immune factors that should be additionally examined becouse of the known destruction of pigment cells in the skin and eye, retina and optic nerve in particular, that are connected by retinal nerve fiber layer. It is just the retinal nerve fiber layer decay in glaucoma that is important to monitor the progression of visual field loss.
