Another crucial physiological role for plasminogen is as an integral component of wound healing. Patients with plasminogen deficiency have a marked reduction in wound healing ability, which is most pronounced in mucous membranes such as the conjuctiva. This leads to development of pseudo membranes on mucosal surfaces, and ultimately, organ damage. The most common presentation is ligneous conjuctivitis, other affected areas can be mouth, larynx, vocal cords, ear, tracheobronchial tree and female genitourinary tract.
