Abstract

The authors have recently treated a case of Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome due to Chlamydia trachomatis serotype L2, a causative agent of lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV). The ocular manifestations included a mixed papillary-follicular conjuctivities with fleshy superior limbal lesions in both eyes. A superior marginal corneal perforation requiring a therapeutic corneal graft was present in the right eye. The patient had vaginitis, inguinal lymphadenopathy, a history of Sjogren's syndrome, and seropositivity to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The ocular disease resolved completely after 6 weeks of oral tetracycline therapy.
