Conflicting results have been reported concerning the association of pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXF) and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). Schumacher et al. reported an association between AAA and PXF, with no consideration of grade. However, a later study did not confirm the association between AAA and PXF. The present study aimed at comparing the relative prevalence of PXF in patients suffering from AAA and in age-matched hypertensive patients.

Study Population
in patients suffering from abdominal aortic aneurism as part of a routine clinical yearly follow-up and hypertensive patients without abdominal aortic aneurism and that were more than 60 years old to have similar mean ages in both groups, as pseudoexfoliation and abdominal aortic aneurism are age-related disorders
