Abstract

VASCONCELOS, Rossana Cantanhede Farias de et al. Morbihan syndrome: a case report and literature review. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, suppl.1, pp.157-159. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20164291.

Morbihan syndrome is a rare entity that more commonly affects women in the third or fourth decade of life. It is considered a special form of rosacea and its pathogenesis is not fully known. It is clinically characterized by the slow appearance of erythema and solid edemas on the upper portion of the face, with accentuation in the periorbital region, forehead, glabella, nose, and cheeks. We report the case of a patient presented with edema on the upper eyelid for a year. These findings suggested the diagnosis of Morbihan syndrome. We aim to report a rare, particularly refractory and chronic form of rosacea, which has received little attention in the literature.

Keywords : Edema; Erythema; Rosacea.
