Chalazion is a localized chronic granulomatous inflammation with blockage of the meibomian glands in eyelid. The chief effects of chalazion are cosmetic disfigurement with variable discomfort. The standard treatment of chalazion is by incision and curettage. This study was undertaken to investigate outcome of intra-lesional triamcinolone acetonide injection for primary chalazia. Eighty six patients with 100 chalazia were treated by intra-lesional injection of Triamcinolone acetonide. Subcutaneous injection of triamcinolone acetonide in primary and recurrent chalazion appears to be a simple and efficacious therapeutic option for chalazion in small health care centres.
