abstract

  • Earlier intervention with application of amniotic membrane to the ocular surface in this patient with severe ocular involvement secondary to Stevens-Johnson syndrome proved superior. Application of amniotic membrane as soon as possible after disease onset, preferably in the hyperacute phase, appears to result in a significantly better clinical outcome than application later in the disease course.
