Description Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder that has been associated with unspecific etiologic factors and diverse systemic manifestations. Cutaneous rosacea usually evolves to ocular rosacea in 6 to 72% of patients. In the absence of specific criteria that characterize this pathology, ocular rosacea can mean a diagnostic challenge. In order to offer elements to strengthen diagnostic suspicion early, we present three cases of patients with different clinical evolution, but who had in common the diagnostic delay that resulted in severe manifestations and extensive ocular damage.
La rosácea es un desorden crónico cutáneo que ha sido asociado a factores etiológicos inespecíficos y diversas manifestaciones sistémicas. La rosácea cutánea suele evolucionar a rosácea ocular en un 6 a 72% de los pacientes. Al no existir criterios específicos que caractericen esta patología, la rosácea ocular puede significar un reto diagnóstico. Con la finalidad de ofrecer elementos para fortalecer la sospecha diagnóstica de manera temprana, presentamos tres casos de pacientes con evolución clínica distinta, pero que tuvieron en común el retraso diagnóstico que se tradujo en manifestaciones severas y daño ocular extenso.
