Abstract
Rosacea is a chronic skin disease characterized by erythema, telangiectasia, papules and pustules in the central facial region. It most often affects adults and is rare in children. Rosacea can also present ocular involvement. Symptoms can precede cutaneous findings, appear simultaneously or after them, with a higher risk of ocular complications in children. Because of low prevalence of rosacea in childhood, the diagnosis is frequently delayed. We report a 1-year-old boy with ocular and cutaneous rosacea who developed corneal opacities and visual impairment. Early diagnosis and treatment is considerable to avoid sequels.
