Eyelid depigmentation following corticosteroid injection for infantile ocular adnexal hemangioma

Academic Article


  • We report an unusual case of development of upper eyelid depigmentation in a child 4 months following corticosteroid injection of a periocular capillary hemangioma. Depigmentation has been described with local steroid injections for other dermatologic conditions, but has not been reported previously with treatment of infantile ocular adnexal hemangiomas.
