Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Purpose: To report a case of bilateral Mooren's-type corneal ulcers associated with severe hidradenitis suppurativa. Design: Case report and literature review. Methods: Detailed clinical course including presentation, medical, and surgical treatment. Results: A 47-year-old African American male with severe hidradenitis suppurativa presented with bilateral Mooren's-type corneal ulcers. His systemic workup was unrevealing. Progression led to bilateral corneal perforations. Systemic immunosuppression and surgical intervention were needed to control his disease. Conclusions: Severe hidradenitis suppurativa should be considered as a risk factor for Mooren's-type corneal ulcer.
