Answer

Ocular manifestations range from acute conjunctivitis to corneal erosions and ulcers. Genital involvement may result in painful urination. Other mucosal surfaces such as the esophagus, intestinal tract, or respiratory epithelium may be affected. Bronchial epithelial sloughing may result in dyspnea and hypoxemia.
