Introduction - To present a rare case of bilateral acute angle-closure glaucoma secondary to duloxetine administered for the treatment of depression. Case presentation - A 46 year old woman developed bilateral closed angle glaucoma after 15 days of duloxetine usage. Intraocular pressures (IOP) were 52 and 55 mm Hg in right and left eyes respectively, with shallow anterior chamber and angle closure on gonioscopy. Discontinuing duloxetine treatment, initiation of antiglaucomatous treatment and bilateral Nd:YAG Laser iridotomy obtained normalized IOP and anterior chamber depth. Conclusion - Duloxetine, used in the treatment of depression can be responsible for acute angle-closure glaucoma by leading to mydriasis and ciliary effusion.
