Aim: Iridocorneal endothelial (ICE) syndrome is a rare disease characterized by abnormal proliferation and structural changes of the endothelium, obliteration of the iridocorneal angle, and anomalies of the iris. The consequence of these changes is secondary glaucoma and corneal decompensation. The etiology is unclear, and the syndrome more commonly affects middle-aged women.

Case reports: In this article we present two different case studies of young patients diagnosed with ICE syndrome with complications. The first case report is about a young woman in whom surgical treatment of glaucoma and corneal edema was successful. On the other hand, the second report presents a complicated case of a 29-year-old patient whose treatment was not successful despite repeated interventions.

Conclusion: This text highlights the complexity of ICE syndrome, the difficulty of its therapy and the importance of early diagnosis.
