Intralesional Tetracycline Injection in the Treatment of Chalazia (TET)
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.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Intralesional Tetracycline Injection in the Treatment of Chalazia|
- 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.
|Study Start Date:||March 2013|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||March 2014|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
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.
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.
Chalazia randomized to the treatment arm will be injected with 0.05 mL of 2% tetracycline solution.
