About this section


NIH Rare Diseases:41 Ligneous conjunctivitis is a rare disorder characterized by the buildup of a protein called fibrin which causes inflammation of the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis) and leads to thick, woody (ligneous), inflamed growths that are yellow, white, or red. ligneous conjunctivitis most often occurs on the inside of the eyelids, but may also affect the sclera, cornea and pupil, leading to vision loss. a systemic form of the condition may occur, affecting the mucous membranes of the larynx, vocal chords, nose, trachea, bronchi, vagina, cervix, and gingiva. the cause of ligneous conjunctivitis is unknown. autosomal recessive inheritance has been suggested in some cases. ligneous conjunctivitis is sometimes associated with a condition known as congenital plasminogen deficiency. last updated: 4/29/2013

MalaCards based summary: Conjunctivitis Ligneous, also known as ligneous conjunctivitis, is related to conjunctivitis and congenital plasminogen deficiency. An important gene associated with Conjunctivitis Ligneous is PLG (plasminogen). Affiliated tissues include cervix, trachea and eye.
