Occult Rosacea Diagnosed After Recurring Blepharoplasty Incision Inflammation.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg. 2020 Nov 05;:

Authors: Medsinge A, Googe P, Fowler AM

Abstract
We report an unusual case of a 58-year-old Caucasian female who developed intermittent eyelid erythema, edema, and wound thickening in the early postoperative period after bilateral upper eyelid blepharoplasty. These flares of inflammation sometimes appeared to respond to systemic antibiotics and steroid preparations and sometimes not. Because of concerns for possible mycobacterial infection, biopsy of the upper eyelid incision was performed and histopathology confirmed rosacea. Symptoms resolved with oral azithromycin. Our patient did not have a diagnosis of rosacea preoperatively. We believe that rosacea should be kept in mind in cases with either prolonged inflammation or recurrent inflammation in previously quiet eyelid incisions.
