Examination of the palpebral conjunctiva on the involved side reveals either a characteristic granulomatous lesion 2-4 mm in diameter or a frank scratch. While POS has been associated with other infections (eg, tuberculosis, tularemia, lymphogranuloma venereum), it most commonly is associated with CSD. Prognosis is identical to that of typical CSD.
