To report a patient with a history of eye involving Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) who developed chronic bilateral purulent discharge attributed to conjunctival diverticuli.A 75-year-old woman with SJS presented with bilateral chronic relapsing purulent conjunctivitis secondary to inferior conjunctival diverticuli. The symptoms resolved after marsupialization of the diverticuli.The conjunctival scarring associated with SJS can lead to sequestration of conjunctival epithelium that may in turn lead to the formation of a diverticulum. The presence of a diverticulum should be considered in patients with a history of SJS who develop chronic relapsing purulent conjunctivitis.
