Objective: Topical corticosteroids are known to cause raised intraocular pressure (IOP). However, there is a scarcity of literature regarding systemic steroids-induced raised IOP in children. The authors aimed to evaluate the IOP in children with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) receiving oral prednisone. Methods: In this prospective study, children (1 to 18 y) with newly diagnosed AIH who received oral prednisone (July 2016 to December 2017) were included. Comprehensive ophthalmic check-up, including visual acuity, IOP, slit-lamp, and fundus examinations were done before and at 1, 3, and 6 months of follow-up. IOP &...
