Ocular rosacea.

The demographic, clinical, and histopathologic characteristics of ocular rosacea are reviewed, with emphasis on examination of the skin in patients with external ocular disease. Since no single clinical or pathological hallmark of rosacea exists, a proposed point system for diagnosis is presented. Studies of pathogenesis reveal that no single unifying hypothesis accounts for all the expressions of ocular rosacea. Reports of treatment with tetracycline and other antibiotics demonstrate efficacy, although the mechanisms of action of these drugs are not known. More recently, other classes of drugs, including isotretinoin and hexachlorocyclohexane, have proven to be effective in dermatologic manifestations of rosacea, but effects on ocular manifestations are unknown.
