To evaluate systemic/eye manifestations and treatment modalities in a case of Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome (RTS) with bilateral congenital glaucoma and structural eye anomalies. Eight-month-old infant with RTS presented to our clinic with bilateral epiphora and corneal haze in one eye. In ophthalmologic examination, bilateral congenital glaucoma and epiblepharon were found. Medical and surgical treatments of congenital glaucoma were performed. Abnormal eye findings are commonly seen in RTS cases, therefore, ophthalmologic examinations and treatment modalities should be done with caution. (Turk J Ophthalmol 2011; 41: 260-3)
