Ligneous conjunctivitis (LC) is a rare and chronic disorder which is characterized by hard wood-like membranes on the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva. It usually presents when plasminogen functional activity is under normal range (80-120%), usually below 52%, and plasminogen level in blood generally <1.2 mg/dl. Severity is associated with a low plasminogen functional activity, values below 5% can affect all mucous surfaces, and the disease could present as a systemic disorder. LC may occur after infectious conjunctivitis or ophthalmic surgical treatment, associated with recurrence of membranes after removal. Plasminogen topical administration has demonstrated a plausible efficient treatment for preventing the recurrence of LC. The goal of our study is to report the case of a 6-year-old male child with post-infectious LC, that when he was 2 years old presented recurrence of the disease after surgical resection and combined treatment with topical tobramycin, dexamethasone, and cyclosporine A.
