Ligneous Conjunctivitis is an autosomal recessive, chronic form of conjunctivitis characterized by formation of pseudo-membrane particularly over tarsal conjunctiva attributed to plasminogen deficiency. Various forms of medical and surgical treatment modalities have been reported. We are reporting a case of ligneous conjunctivitis in a nine month old baby managed successfully with both topical and intravenous fresh frozen plasma, topical heparin and cyclosporine.
