Abstract
Purpose. To report the clinical course of 2 pediatric ocular rosacea cases with a significant delay until diagnosis. Methods. We report 2 interventional case reports. Case 1 is a 10-year-old boy with 2 years of recurrent bilateral blepharitis, repetition chalazion, conjunctival hyperemia, and corneal ulcers, without response to topical antibiotics or topical and systemic steroids. Case 2 is a 9-year-old girl with keratoconjunctivitis and repetition chalazion since she was 2 years old, without improvement after consulting several ophthalmologists and performing several treatments throughout those years. Results. Rapid response to systemic erythromycin with marked improvement of both cases within a few weeks. Conclusions. Ocular rosacea is frequently misdiagnosed, particularly in the pediatric population. To our knowledge, this report demonstrates a case with the longest history before diagnosis (7 years) and another case in which a conjunctival biopsy was performed.
