Low serum vitamin A levels linked to chalazion in children

Low serum vitamin A levels were associated with chalazion development in a group of children in East China, according to a study published in Optometry and Vision Science.
“We found that serum vitamin A levels were significantly lower in patients with chalazion than in control subjects, while the serum levels of 25(OH)D were not significantly different between the two groups,” Haixia Cheng, MD, and colleagues at Children's Hospital of Nanjing Medical University wrote.
The case-control study, conducted from January 2019 to December 2019, included 90 children with chalazion and 90
