Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two dogs were presented with severe dermatopathies leading to cicatricial ectropion and severe surface ocular pathology. In one case, idiopathic sterile pyogranuloma was diagnosed on histopathology and managed with systemic immunosuppressive therapy. In the second case, demodicosis was diagnosed on skin scrapings and successfully treated with acaricidal medication. Following control of the underlying dermatopathies, both cases developed cicatricial ectropion as a result of scarring and contracture of eyelid tissue. Wharton-Jones (V-Y) blepharoplasties were performed on the affected eyelids and resulted in improved eyelid function and reduced corneal exposure in both cases.
