Abstract: Rosacea is an uncommon disease of the eye and facial skin. Ocular rosacea is often undiagnosed by the ophthalmologist especially when skin manifestations are not evident yet. Early diagnosis and treatment is important to decrease morbidity of this potentially blinding disease. A case of ocular rosacea in a 14-year-old Chinese girl is reported. Our patient presented with chronic non-specific keratoconjunctivitis. Only much later did the characteristic corneal and facial skin lesions appear. She responded to guttae prednisolone, oral and guttae tetracycline. This case illustrates the difficulty of early diagnosis when ocular manifestations precede those of the skin. We believe this is the first case of ocular rosacea reported in Singapore.
