Abstract

Destructive membranous periodontal disease is a rare and poorly defined entity that is a part of a systemic disease due to accumulation of fibrin material. The disease is characterized by gingival enlargement and periodontal tissue destruction that leads to rapid bone loss despite treatment efforts. We present a case with ligneous periodontitis and conjunctivitis.
