Of a series of 263 patients undergoing allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT), 24 patients developed conjunctival involvement by graft-vs-host disease (GVHD). In each case, a distinct-appearing conjunctivitis developed that representing GVHD of the conjunctiva. In 19 cases (79%), conjunctival GVHD presented with pseudomembrane formation due to loss of the conjunctival epithelium; in 4 of these cases, the corneal epithelium was lost as well. Nineteen patients developed this feature in… CONTINUE READING
