Treatment of Chalazion by steroid injection and Surgery
Chalazion, Meibomian cyst or tarsal cyst is a chronic granulomatous inflammation of the meibomian glands of the eyelid (located in tarsal plate) following acute inflammation.
Chalazion forms when secretion in meibomian glands or ducts is blocked due to any etiologic factor.
Research was conducted to show what percentage of patient respond well to steroid injection in chalazion.
The research was conducted in ophthalmology department of Nangarhar University Teaching Hospital including a sample size of 40 patients suffering from chalazion from 2018/2/1 until 2018/12/18.
Of 40 patients, 40 patients were male and 14 were female both aging between 10 to 50 years. Moreover, the research prospectively took 11 months.
0.2 ml of Triamcinolone 40mg/1ml was injected inside the chalazion to each patient. During the research 70% of patients responded well to the first injection, 22 % of patients needed second injection for their response and 7.5% of patients did not respond to the medicine and underwent surgical treatment.
Triamcinolone is a better choice of treatment for chalazion due to being inexpensive, availability, easy administration and administration in OPD patients.
