Results : in 16 eyes with trabeculotomy 10 eyes (62.50) have controlled IOP with and without medication 4 eyes (31.25) undergone Trabeculectomy with MMC or 5FU have contolled IOP, 2 eyes (6.25) have no response to surgery so cyclocryo was for them. Conclusion : for controllong the IOP in congenital glaucoma the best procedure is trabeculotomy or trabeclectomy with 5FU or MMC , according to patient�s condition we can repeat the surgery
