Diseases of periocular hair.

Author information

Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Science, University of California-Davis, Sacramento, USA.


Diseases of the periocular hair range from localized disease to systemic processes and may present challenging diagnostic questions. We present a comprehensive clinical guide to the evaluation and diagnosis of these disorders. Deficiencies in growth, excess production, changes in pigmentation, aberrant position, or abnormalities in form may affect this region's hair. These range from benign to sight-, and even life-, threatening pathologies.
