The AIM of the present study was to evaluate the therapeutic effect of fluconazole (FungoIon) in patients with seborrheic blepharitis.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: Four seborrheic blepharitis patients with Malassezia spp. positive cultures on Dixon's agar were treated with fluconazole (Fungolon) (0.200) weekly for 4 weeks.

RESULTS: The therapeutic effect of the treatment was positive in all patients--the clinical symptoms withdrew and cultures became mycologically negative.

CONCLUSION: The results indicate that antifungal agents are efficient in the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis.
