Abstract

Purpose: To describe the effects of collagen vascular diseases on the eyelids and periorbital tissues. Methods: Retrospective review of dermatologic pathology slides at Massachusetts General Hospital and eye pathology slides at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, Massachusetts. Results: A spectrum of dermatologic manifestations of collagen vascular diseases was observed, affecting the eyelids and periorbital region. Conclusions: Collagen vascular diseases may present complicated diagnostic and clinical challenges for the practicing ophthalmologist. Familiarity with the cutaneous periocular manifestations of these diseases may facilitate early recognition, diagnosis, and ophthalmologic intervention where necessary.
