BERNAL, Lidia E.; ZARCO, Ana Paulina; CAMPOS, Pablo  y  ARENAS, Roberto. Childhood rosácea. Bol. Med. Hosp. Infant. Mex. [online]. 2019, vol.76, n.2, pp.95-99. ISSN 1665-1146.


Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that usually occurs in adults and rarely has been reported in children, although both subtypes share the same clinical characteristics.

Case report:

A 10-year-old female presented dermostosis on the face, affecting cheeks and nose, characterized by erythema, papules, pustules, scars of two years of evolution, as well as bilateral conjunctivitis, blepharitis and corneal opacity. She referred recurrent exacerbations and partial remission of cutaneous lesions and ocular symptoms related to sun exposure. She responded dramatically to systemic and topical antibiotics.


Childhood rosacea should be distinguished from other most common erythematous facial disorders, such as acne, granulomatous perioral dermatitis, and sarcoidosis. The distribution of papulopustular facial lesions together with the presence of telangiectasia, flushing and the ocular findings allow the differentiation of rosacea from other facial eruptions.
