Eyelid involvement in disseminated chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus

Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol. 2006 Sep-Oct;72(5):370-2. doi: 10.4103/0378-6323.27756.


Eye involvement in chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CCLE) has been reported infrequently. We describe two cases of disseminated CCLE, a 50-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man, with eyelid involvement and disease duration of 4 and 20 years respectively. The first patient showed an excellent response to chloroquine while there was lack of response in the second patient.
