Summaries for Ligneous Conjunctivitis

GARD : 20 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.

MalaCards based summary : Ligneous Conjunctivitis, also known as conjunctivitis, ligneous, is related to plasminogen deficiency, type i and gingivitis. An important gene associated with Ligneous Conjunctivitis is PLG (Plasminogen), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and Transcriptional misregulation in cancer. The drugs Fibrinolytic Agents and Ophthalmic Solutions have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include cervix, trachea and eye.
