Abstract

Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) is a rare life-threatening hypersensitive mucocutaneous disease triggered mostly by medication and other diseases. Even after recovering from skin related issues, most of them are suffer from serious ocular complications leading to blindness. There is no definite effective treatment for SJS. Early detection and aggressive treatment are important for the improvement of the eye. Eyelid margin, palpebral conjunctiva and fornix should be checked properly to detect the cicatricial changes that make chronic ocular surface problems such as limbal cell deficiency and complete ocular surface keratinization. Hence, there is a need for identifying corneal pathologies as early as possible, to manage the later stages of disease and to reduce the risk of complication. In this presentation an effort has been made to review corneal pathologies in Stevens -Johnson Syndrome and made to correlate ayurvedic and modern corneal disorders in compliment aspect.
