Vernal conjunctivitis is a chronic, bilateral conjunctival inflammatory disease found primarily in young males with history of atopy during spring months. Initial symptom onset is before puberty, and symptoms dissipate by the third decade of life. In severe cases, vernal conjunctivitis can lead to corneal scarring and permanent vision loss. Histopathologically, conjunctival infiltration with basophils, eosinophils, plasma cells, lymphocytes, and macrophages characterizes vernal conjunctivitis. With this cellular milieu, it appears that vernal conjunctivitis is a combined immediate and delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction.
