Abstract

Background: Hypoplasminogenemia is a rare condition that is associated with ligneous conjunctivitis, a form of chronic conjunctivitis characterized by firm, fibrin-rich, pseudomembranous lesions on the tarsal conjunctivae and oral lesions. Pseudomembranes may develop on the gingivae, and there may be periodontal involvement.
