Contrary to the majority of acute conjunctivitis cases, chronic conjunctivitis can be caused by infection or inflammation of the lacrimal duct system, conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasm, floppy eyelid syndrome, and immunologic reaction. Symptoms are presented as insidious discharge, eye redness, and foreign body sensation. Chronic conjunctivitis is usually not self-limited. Some cases of antibiotic-resistant chronic conjunctivitis in conjunction with tarsoconjunctival crypts have been reported. A thorough marsupialization of the crypts and short-term treatment with antibiotic eye drops can prevent recurrence. In this article, we report a patient with a similar form of chronic conjunctivitis that was refractory to multiple courses of antibiotic therapy.
