[Morbihan disease as a special form of rosacea : Review of pathogenesis and new therapeutic options.]

Hautarzt. 2013 Nov 9;

Authors: Balakirski G, Baron JM, Megahed M

Abstract
Morbihan disease is classified as a special form of rosacea, which presents with persistent facial erythema and solid edema because of marked involvement of the lymphatic vessels. The cheeks, nose and forehead are particularly affected. Currently, the treatment options of this cosmetically very disturbing disease are limited. However, every attempt should be made to provide treatment because of the great emotional suffering of the patients. We review some new currently available therapeutic options for Morbihan disease. In our patient, we were able to achieve a significant improvement with systemic isotretinoin 30 mg/day over a period of 12 months.
