Table 6 Foster (1986), Mondino (1987), and Tauber (1992) systems for mucous membrane pemphigoid with ocular involvement

From: A review of scoring systems for ocular involvement in chronic cutaneous bullous diseases

Foster (1986) and Mondino (1987).
System Characteristics
Foster stages I Subconjunctival scarring and fibrosis
II Fornix foreshortening of any degree
III Presence of symblepharon, any degree
IV Ankyloblepharon, frozen globe
Mondino stages I 0–25% loss of inferior fornix depth
II 25–50% loss of inferior fornix depth
III 50–75% loss of inferior fornix depth
  IV 75–100% loss of inferior fornix depth
Tauber Staging System (1992).
I   Subconjunctival scarring and fibrosis
II a 0–25% loss of inferior fornix depth
b 25–50% loss of inferior fornix depth
c 50–75% loss of inferior fornix depth
d 75–100% loss of inferior fornix depth
III a 0–25% horizontal involvement of symblephara
b 25–50% horizontal involvement of symblephara
c 50–75% horizontal involvement of symblephara
d 75–100% horizontal involvement of symblephara
n Number of symblephara countable
IV   Ankyloblepharon, frozen globe
