INTRODUCTION: This study aims to compare the choroidal thickness (CT) of patients with rosacea with healthy individuals.

METHODS: This study was conducted with 42 patients with Papulopustular Rosacea (PPR), 38 patients with Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea (ETR), and gender and age-matched 37 healthy individuals in the control group. CT measurements were done using the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography.

RESULTS: Choroidal thickness means were measured as 352 ± 78 μm, 331 ± 67 μm, and 346 ± 83 μm at the subfoveal region; 323 ± 72.3 μm, 303.5 ± 68.4 μm, and 314 ± 80.3 μm at 1000 μm nasal; and 325.2 ± 71 μm, 304.4 ± 52.2 μm, and 309 ± 67 μm at 1000 μm temporal in the PPR, ETR, and control groups, respectively (p > 0.05).

CONCLUSION: Although rosacea is a common chronic skin disease that could have systemic findings, CT is not affected by this disease.
