Of 33 cases of Stevens-Johnson syndrome treated over a 20-year period, five developed keratitis sicca with corneal pannus and one developed corneal pannus alone. The severity of the ophthalmic complications was related to the severity of the disease in its acute phase and was not related to the local treatment used on the eyes.
