malformalady: Cicatricial pemphigoid (CP) refers to a group of rare chronic autoimmune blistering diseases that predominately affects the mucous membranes, including the conjunctiva, and occasionally the skin. Scarring of the mucous membranes is common, hence the designation cicatricial, which can lead to decreased vision and blindness.

smellslikecadaverine: Band keratopathy involving the interpalpebral cornea in a patient with pauciarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis and chronic anterior uveitis.
eyedefects: Corneal burn caused by alkali

eyedefects: Corneal burn caused by alkali
malformalady: Slit-lamp photograph of cholesterol crystals (cholesterolosis bulbi) in anterior chamber. Similar crystals may be seen in the vitreous. The cholesterol crystals are freely moveable and settle to the bottom of the vitreous chamber when the eye is at rest. Cholesterosis bulbi occurs in eyes with retinal detachment that have had extensive hemorrhage from trauma or other pathologic states.
eyedefects: Cornea with granular dystrophy.
malformalady: Human dirofilariasis caused by infection with Dirofilaria worms(a genus of roundworm). The symptoms associated with infection by these filarial parasites,  which are transmitted to humans by zooanthropophilic mosquitoes, are  characterized by mainly pulmonary and subcutaneous nodules.
malformalady: Surgical removal of a loa loa worm from the subconjunctival tissue of the eye. Loa loa is a blood dwelling nematode that is parasitic in humans. The adult worm wanders through the subcutaneous tissue but is most obvious as it crosses the conjunctiva of the eye hence leading to its common name, the African eye worm. Like all roundworms, Loa loa is sexual so a male and female worm must be present in the same host for a full infection to ensue. Upon reproduction the female worm produces sheathed eggs called microfilariae which circulate in the blood stream.
