Purpose: To report conjunctival ulceration as a complication of periocular triamcinolone acetonide injection. Interventional case series.
Methods: Conjunctival ulceration was found in three patients who had anterior subtenon's or subconjunctival deposition of triamcinolone. Cultures from the ulcer edges were negative.
Results: Most of the triamcinolone extruded, and the conjunctival ulcers healed with minimal scarring.
Conclusions: Conjunctival ulceration was a potential complication of periocular triamcinolone injection in three patients who had anterior subtenon's or subconjunctival deposition of the corticosteroid.
