[Pediatric ocular rosacea effectively treated with topical 1.5% azithromycin eye drops].

Ophthalmologe. 2020 Dec 09;:

Abstract
Ocular rosacea in children is a rare but often underdiagnosed condition. It is typically associated with chronic blepharoconjunctivitis, chalazia, corneal opacity and corneal neovascularization. The recommended treatment consists of topical (eyelid hygiene, steroids, cyclosporin, lubricants) and systemic (antibiotics e.g. erythromycin) measures. This case series of 8 children demonstrates the efficacy of local 1.5% azithromycin treatment together with eyelid hygiene in pediatric ocular rosacea. A further advantage of this topical treatment is that the required application of only twice daily for 3 days followed by 7 days without treatment is convenient and improves adherence to treatment.
