Efficacy of various types of intrachalazion injections of corticosteroids was evaluated. Best results were received by injection of Triamcenolne (80-92.3%). Of the 40 chalazia which received hydrocortisone acetate showed 30-48% total cure rate. But the cases who had dexamethasone therapy did not show encouraging results. The lesions having firm to hard consistency with a chronicity of the process were not suitable cases for intralesional corticosteroid therapy. Cases of recurrent chalazia demand needle aspiration biopsy prior to injection.
