Rosacea with severe neurological symptoms such as burning and stinging is often not treated effectively by conventional therapies. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics of Korean rosacea patients with prominent neurological symptoms. The demographic features, medical history, clinical manifestations and treatment modalities of 17 neurogenic rosacea patients who had prominent neurological symptoms and 106 erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR) patients as a control group were investigated. All 17 neurogenic rosacea patients had severe persistent erythema with burning/stinging sensation limited to both cheeks. Among these patients, 94.1% were female (16/17). Heat stimuli (58.8%, 10/17) and stress (52.9%, 9/17) were major aggravating factors. Fourteen of 17 patients (82.3%) improved after receiving anticonvulsants and antidepressants. In conclusion, rosacea patients with severe neurological symptoms show distinct clinical manifestations and should be classified separately, and a different therapeutic approach is necessary for them.
