Atopic Keratoconjunctivitis

Atopic keratoconjunctivitis (AKC) is a chronic inflammatory disease of eye that affects patients with atopic dermatitis. AKC was first described in 1952 by Hogan, who described five cases of atopic eczema associated with bilateral keratoconjunctivitis. Peak incidence is between 30-50 years old. It is characterized by bilateral, non-infectious inflammation of the conjunctiva.
