Özet

Ligneous conjunctivitis is a rare form of chronic pseudomembranous conjunctivitis characterized by membranes on the conjunctiva. The disease usually affects children but can occur at older age as well. Similar lesions may develop on other mucous membranes of the body if the disease is associated with systemic plasminogen deficiency. We report our 6 cases with ligneous conjunctivitis and discuss them in terms of diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
