Answer

Aniridia: Chromosome analysis and genetic counseling are important parts of the workup.

Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome: Patients may need workup for associated systemic abnormalities.

Many other systemic anomaly – associated glaucoma conditions require appropriate workup including genetic analysis, laboratory studies, and imaging to diagnose and manage the patient's systemic diseases.
