Ophthal Plast Reconstr Surg. 2012 Nov 2; Authors: Chiam PJ, Hubbard AD Abstract A man with rosacea developed bilateral eyelid edema from wearing a continuous positive airway pressure nasal mask daily. The edema was refractory to steroid, diuretics, and lymphatic drainage massage. The effect may be related to cumulative venous congestion and lymphostasis due to the continuous positive airway pressure treatment.PMID: 23128530 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/23128530?dopt=Abstract = URL to article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
