Image Based MCQ on Ophthalmology

Hello Awesomites!
Yesterday we posted an Image based MCQ on Ophthalmology and here is the answer for it.
Q. What is the most likely diagnosis of the given image? 

A. Ankyloblepharon
B. Symblepharon
C. Pterygium
D. Pseudo pterygium 

The correct answer is B. Symblepharon.
Symblepharon is an adhesion between the eyelid and the eyeball. It can involve just one lid or both. This adhesion of subepithelial scarring can lead to other lid complications such as aberrant lash growth and entropion. Symblepharon can develop as a complication of several diseases and/or etiologies that include:
Severe dry eye syndrome
Stevens-Johnson syndrome
Cicatricial pemphigoid
Chemical injury
Erythema multiforme
Bullous pemphigus
Conjunctival infections associated with conjunctival scarring such as chlamydial, vernal, atopic, and bacterial conjunctivitis
Epidemic keratoconjunctivitis
Toxic epidermal necrosis

That's all!
Thank you.
