NCT01763437
First received: January 5, 2013
Last updated: December 11, 2013
Last verified: January 2013
  Purpose

The investigators propose a study to investigate the role of tetracycline injection into chalazia versus observation alone. The investigators hypothesize tetracycline injection will result in a significant decrease in lesion size when compared to observation alone.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Lesion size [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The size of the lesion will be measured as well as photographed. Photographs will be reviewed by a masked chalazion photograph reviewer.


Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: March 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: Observation
30 patients will be randomized to observation alone. These patients will return 4 weeks (+/- 2 weeks) after their initial visit for lesion measurement and photographs.
Experimental: Tetracycline
30 patients will be randomized to treatment with an intralesional injection of 0.05 mL of 2% tetracycline solution. These subjects will return 4 weeks (+/- 2 weeks) after treatment for lesion measurement and photographs.
Drug: Tetracycline
Chalazia randomized to the treatment arm will be injected with 0.05 mL of 2% tetracycline solution.
