Our purpose was to characterize and provide objective measures of vessel changes in erythematotelangiectatic rosacea by videocapillaroscopy.We compared 30 patients with erythematotelangiectatic rosacea with 30 age- and sex-matched patients with facial seborrheic dermatitis and 30 healthy control subjects. Videocapillaroscopy was performed both on the cheeks and on the nailfold region. The analyzed parameters of the face were morphological (background color, vessel irregularities) and quantitative (polygonal net perimeter, telangiectasia, and vessel diameters). Videocapillaroscopy may represent a valid adjunctive method in the early diagnosis and measurement of erythematotelangiectatic rosacea.

Abstract

Our purpose was to characterize and provide objective measures of vessel changes in erythematotelangiectatic rosacea by videocapillaroscopy.We compared 30 patients with erythematotelangiectatic rosacea with 30 age- and sex-matched patients with facial seborrheic dermatitis and 30 healthy control subjects. Videocapillaroscopy was performed both on the cheeks and on the nailfold region. The analyzed parameters of the face were morphological (background color, vessel irregularities) and quantitative (polygonal net perimeter, telangiectasia, and vessel diameters). Videocapillaroscopy may represent a valid adjunctive method in the early diagnosis and measurement of erythematotelangiectatic rosacea.
