Abstract

 

Mucous membrane pemphigoid is a rare autoimmune disorder of the ocular surface and other mucosa, causing scarring of the conjunctiva and cornea. Cataract surgery is yet considered a safe procedure in these cases. However we present a case of ocular pemphigoid manifested four weeks after an uneventful cataract procedure in both eyes. Clinical exam and histology excluded other causes of cicatrizing conjunctivitis or Sjogren syndrome. This may be the first reported mucous membrane pemphigoid presented after cataract surgery, in a previously asymptomatic patient.

Keywords: Cataract surgery, Dry eye, Mucous membrane pemphigoid, Ocular cicatricial pemphigoid, Ulcerative keratitis
