Abstract
BACKGROUND: Rosacea is currently diagnosed by consensus-defined primary and secondary features and managed by subtype. However, individual features (phenotypes) can span multiple subtypes, which has implications for clinical practice and research. Adopting a phenotype-led approach may facilitate patient-centred management.
OBJECTIVES: To advance clinical practice by obtaining international consensus to establish a phenotype-led rosacea diagnosis and classification scheme with global representation.
METHODS: Seventeen dermatologists and three ophthalmologists used a modified Delphi approach to reach consensus on statements pertaining to critical aspects of rosacea diagnosis, classification and severity evaluation. All voting was electronic and blinded.
RESULTS: Consensus was achieved for transitioning to a phenotype-based approach to rosacea diagnosis and classification. Two features were independently considered diagnostic for rosacea: persistent, centrofacial erythema associated with periodic intensification; and phymatous changes. Flushing, telangiectasia, inflammatory lesions and ocular manifestations were not considered individually diagnostic. The panel reached agreement on dimensions for phenotype severity measures and established the importance of assessing the patient burden of rosacea.
CONCLUSIONS: The panel recommended an approach for diagnosis and classification of rosacea based on disease phenotype. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
