Focal Points 2019 Module: Management of Cicatrizing Disorders

Ocular cicatrizing disease is a broad term that refers to a group of conjunctival scarring disorders that can be divided by etiology into autoimmune processes, drug reactions or chemical exposures. The effects of these cicatrizing diseases range from mild irritation to visual devastation.

This Focal Points module reviews advances in surgical techniques as well as management of mucous membrane pemphigoid, Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis.

By completing this module, you will:

  • Be able to discuss the changes to the diagnostic criteria and treatment options for ocular cicatrizing disorders.
  • Understand the impact of a negative biopsy in mucous membrane pemphigoid on clinical decision making.
  • Be familiar with new standards of care for treatment of Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the stepwise approach and surgical techniques utilized for the management of cicatrizing disorders.
  • Become familiar with the new and evolving stem cell–based and keratoprosthetic treatment options.
