Diagnosis of inflammatory disorders of the eyelid is based on a physical examination and a review of the patient’s medical history. Tests such as laboratory tests, culture and sensitivity tests, and imaging studies may be ordered to rule out other conditions or confirm a diagnosis.
Differential diagnosis of inflammatory disorders of the eyelid may include blepharitis, stye, chalazion, conjunctivitis, dry eye syndrome, and rosacea.
Treatment of inflammatory disorders of the eyelid may include antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, topical steroids, and topical antifungal medications. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the affected tissue.
The prognosis for inflammatory disorders of the eyelid depends on the underlying cause and the severity of the condition. In most cases, symptoms can be managed with medications and lifestyle modifications. However, some cases may require more aggressive treatment.
