Dr. Darren Gregory presents 2 cases of Stevens-Johnson syndrome, showing that sloughing might not always be visible, thus fluorescein eye exam of the fornices should always be performed in these patients. ProKera can be used in combination with amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) to the lid margins and tarsal conjunctiva if bulbar conjunctival involvement is limited (< 1 cm of sloughing). However, ProKera alone is often inadequate, therefore the lid margins and palpebral conjunctiva must also receive AMT.
