Recommended Posts

Ocular rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition that can occur in the absence of cutaneous features. The most common ocular features are chronic blepharoconjunctivitis with eyelid margin inflammation and meibomian gland dysfunction. Corneal complications include corneal vascularization, ulceration, scarring and, rarely, perforation. Diagnosis is largely based on clinical signs, although it is often delayed in the absence of cutaneous changes, particularly in children. It can also be associated with systemic disorders such as cardiovascular disease. Management ranges from local therapy to systemic treatment, depending on the severity of the disease. In this review, we describe the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical features and treatment of rosacea and ocular rosacea.
