Abstract

Two patients with a clinical picture identical to idiopathic ocular cicatricial pemphigoid had received long-term (six to nine years) echothiophate iodide treatment for control of glaucoma in the affected eyes after cataract extraction. Basement membrane zone staining for IgG was seen in the conjunctiva of one affected eye. Decreased or absent goblet cells, epidermalization of the conjunctiva, fibroses, and abnormal numbers of inflammatory cells were seen in both affected eyes.
