Corticosteroid (triamcinolone acetonide) injection of chalazion intralesionally is an effective, easy and a safe method. Perfect recovery was achieved in 88% of 24 chalazion cases (22 patients). Most of them were cured with a single injection. The steroid therapy is most effective when the chalazion has not been secondarily infected. If this has already happened surgery is the method of choice. If the steroid injections are limited only to common non-infected chalazia, the results will be excellent in about 100% of the cases. This treatment may be recommended especially for children and persons with allergy to local anaesthetics. It is particularly suitable for chalazia located close to the lacrimal punctum. Because of its simplicity, efficiency and almost non-existent risks, this method should also be convenient to physicians other than ophthalmologists.
