    Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


    Steroid‐induced elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) leading to glaucoma is a well‐documented phenomenon.1 However, intra‐articular corticosteroid injection causing elevated IOP is an extremely rare phenomenon.2, 3 To our knowledge, we describe the first case of intra‐articular glucocorticoids resulting in steroid‐induced glaucoma.
