Abstract

A 73-year-old man developed conjunctivitis, epiphora, pancytopenia, dermatitis, and a polyclonal gammopathy. Diffuse infiltration and thickening of the conjunctiva and lacrimal canaliculi by plasma cells was present. Histopathologic examination suggested a reactive, chronic inflammatory response rather than neoplasia. The patient's ocular manifestations appeared to be related to his pancytopenia, dermatitis, and polyclonal gammopathy.
