Ligneous conjunctivitis is a rare and poorly understood pathology. Infections and repeated microtraumas are often involved in acute disease flare-ups. This masquerade may lead to misdiagnosis and delayed treatment. We report two cases of ligneous conjunctivitis, describing various presentations of its natural history and focusing on the treatment of this rare disease.

Nous rapportons deux cas de conjonctivite ligneuse tout en décrivant l’aspect des lésions observées et les différentes évolutions possibles, mettant le point sur le traitement de cette pathologie rare.
