Seborrheic blepharitis. Case report, literature review


 Seborrheic blepharitis (SB) is a chronic inflammation of the lid margins which may compromise the eyelid function up to some extent. It results from immunologic factors and is commonly associated with scalp seborrheic dermatitis, facial seborrheic dermatitis, and acne rosacea. A yellowish greasy crust with morning exacerbations associated with stinging and burning are the usual clinical features. The symptoms can be controlled with good lid hygiene.We present a case 9-year-old girl SB in with a 1-year history, treated without the effect of different drugs (antibiotics-oral, topical; steroids). The patient with complete success responded to oral ketoconazole.
