32 Possible Causes for Conjunctival Pseudomembrane

  • Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis

    Ocular involvement varies in severity and can result in mild inflammation, conjunctival erosion, purulent exudates, or pseudomembrane formation.[web.archive.org] Ocular surface inflammation develops rapidly at this stage and may be accompanied by pseudomembranous formation and/or corneal or conjunctival epithelial defects ( Fig. 1[aao.org] Ruptured blisters may form extensive hemorrhagic erosions with grayish white pseudomembranes or shallow aphthouslike ulcers.[web.archive.org]

  • Ligneous Conjunctivitis

    Topical application of FFP was reinitiated soon thereafter, and the girl underwent a second operation to have the conjunctival pseudomembranes removed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this interventional case report, the authors document the results of treatment with topical plasminogen following conjunctival pseudomembrane excision in a 32-year-old[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Since surgical excision of the conjunctival pseudomembranes alone in patients with LC does not protect from recurrences, the perioperative administration of FFP, both systemically[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epidemic Keratoconjunctivitis

    Patients with EKC in whom a conjunctival pseudomembrane develops may have permanent scarring in the fornicies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PURPOSE: Conjunctival membranes are differentiated from pseudomembranes by bleeding on removal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] severe conjunctival inflammation leading to fibrinous pseudomembranes/membranes/conjunctival scarring treatment options for typical viral conjunctivitis 1.[brainscape.com]

  • Acute graft versus host disease

    In this patient, to prevent conjunctival scarring, the pseudomembranes were removed regularly until they no longer appeared, after 3 weeks of treatment.[nejm.org] RESULTS: Thirteen (9.4%) patients developed conjunctival aGVHD, including eight patients with pseudomembranous conjunctivitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Conjunctival hyperemia with pseudomembrane and membrane formation can also be see.[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Graft-versus-Host-Disease
