          Abstract

          Ligneous conjunctivitis is a rare disease characterized by wood-like pseudomembranes developing on the ocular and extraocular mucosae. We present a case of ligneous conjunctivitis and cataracts in a 10-year-old boy with a positive family history of the disease and consanguinity. His condition was managed with topical cyclosporine, heparin, and steroids.
