Blepharitis is an inflammatory condition of the eyelids. An older term for this condition is granulated eyelids. In the seborrheic form of this disease, the anterior or posterior, or both, aspects of the lid may be involved. However, seborrheic blepharitis is the most common cause of anterior blepharitis. The concomitant findings of seborrhea of the scalp and/or acne rosacea further point to the diagnosis.
