Childhood ocular rosacea: considerations for diagnosis and treatment.

Australas J Dermatol. 2009 Nov;50(4):272-5

Authors: Hong E, Fischer G

Rosacea in children is not as well described as it is in adults. Ocular signs may be a dominant feature and some children with what has previously been called periorificial dermatitis may in fact have rosacea. We report three cases of paediatric ocular rosacea responding to prolonged treatment with oral erythromycin. Our cases demonstrate the close association of periorificial dermatitis with childhood rosacea, and highlight the importance of eye signs in its diagnostic criteria.
