Abstract:   (41 Views)
Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) is a systemic autoimmune blistering disease that mostly affects skin and mucosal membranes. When the finding is primarily seen in eyes and conjunctiva, it is called ocular cicatricial pemphigoid (OCP). OCP is characterized by linear deposits of IgA, IgG, or c3 in the epithelial basement membrane zone (BMZ). Ocular involvement is devasting as progressive cicatrization can lead to blindness. In this review article, we discuss pathogenesis, ocular findings, grading, and diagnosis and treatment modalities for OCP.
