Hordeolum and chalazion in Adult
There may be bacterial contamination, especially in hordeola. These infections are generally caused by Staphylococcus species and may be associated with blepharitis. Pain, tenderness, swelling, and discharge from the lesion may all be noted by the patient.
Hordeola may occur in any age group, race, or sex. Chalazia are more common in adults and men.
Patients with rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, and blepharitis are especially at risk for hordeolum or chalazion.
