234 Possible Causes for Symblepharon

  • Stevens-Johnson Syndrome

    He underwent symblepharon lysis and placement of an amniotic membrane wrapped around a symblepharon ring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe the intraoperative difficulties encountered in cases of ocular Stevens-Johnson syndrome as a result of a poor ocular surface, the presence of symblepharon, and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He underwent symblepharon release surgery with mucous membrane graft in both eyes. Osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis surgery was later performed on the left eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Erythropoietic Porphyria

    There was scarring of the entire face, bilaterally severely scarred retracted eye lids with incomplete lid closure (Fig 1 ), loss of eye lashes, scarred conjunctiva with symblepharon[bjo.bmj.com] […] splenomegaly, acroosteolysis, osteopenia and compression fractures.The patients may have ophthalmological changes in the form of photophobia, kerato-conjunctivitis, ectropion, symblepharon[e-ijd.org] […] incomplete lid closure in the left eye, scarred conjunctival and scleral alterations with conjunctival hyperkeratotic plaques in the left eye, bilaterally scarred eye lids with symblepharon[bjo.bmj.com]

  • Perry Syndrome

    With progressive scarring, patients develop symblepharon (fibrous tracts that tether bulbar and conjunctival epithelium), synechiae (adhesion of the iris to the cornea or[emedicine.medscape.com] Ocular manifestations of cicatricial pemphigoid (mucous membrane pemphigoid) include symblepharon, demonstrated in this photograph by the tethering of the lower lid to the[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Coats Plus Syndrome

    Synchisis scintillans, Madarosis, Ablepharie, Heerfordt-Syndrom, Telekanthus, Tränendrüsenentzündung, Hornhautulcus, Glaskörperblutung, Hypotelorismus, Staphylom, Pseudogliom, Symblepharon[abebooks.co.uk]

  • Autosomal Recessive Nail Dysplasia

    If significant symblepharon is associated with ankyloblepharon, release of symblepharon adhesion and covering with amniotic membrane or mucous membrane graft may be done.[eyewiki.aao.org] Acquired ankyloblepharon due to trauma or inflammatory conditions may be associated with symblepharon. [16] Ankyloblepharon alone may be treated with the separation using[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Epidemic Keratoconjunctivitis

    Two case reports are presented in which patients with epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC) develop symblepharon during the course of their infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] suffer from relatively more prominent and prolonged keratitis than the fellow eye Pseudomembrane formation may occur and can be complicated with conjunctival scarring and symblepharon[dro.hs.columbia.edu] Surgical management: Surgery is extremely rare for EKC and is reserved for severe cases with cicatricial conjunctivitis or symblepharon.[aimu.us]

  • Acute Hemorrhagic Conjunctivitis

    Membranous conjunctivitis with blisters, leading to symblepharon. The massive auto-immune reaction in this case was precipitated by sulfa drugs.[atlasophthalmology.net] Ideally, membranes should be removed from the conjunctiva thoroughly so as to prevent contracture, scarring, foreshortening of the fornix and potential symblepharon formation[reviewofoptometry.com]

  • Congenital Horner Syndrome

  • Atopic Keratoconjunctivitis

    These atypical cases often showed a fine papillary conjunctival reaction on the upper tarsus, subconjunctival scarring, and in 1 case severe symblepharon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Significant keratopathy developed in 70% of patients, corneal neovascularization in 60%, fornix foreshortening in 25%, and symblepharon in 20% during the course of their disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During clinical examination cicatricial conjunctivitis was noted in 5 patients, giant papillae in 4, symblepharon in 2, and entropion in 2.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
