IgG and albumin in the aqueous humour and serum were studied using kinetic nephelometry, carried out on 34 eyes with pseudoexfoliation and 31 normal eyes (control group).
The results show a rupture in the hemato-aqueous barrier for IgG and albumin in the group of eyes with pseudoexfoliation and glaucoma, and only for albumin in the group of eyes with pseudoexfoliation without glaucoma.
The calculation of the total IgG index rules out the existence of a primary or associated immunological mechanism in eyes with this syndrome.
