It is in its nature a small furuncle (boil), forming in the connective tissue near the edge of the lid, and has its name from its fancied resemblance to a grain of barley.
It appears as a red, hard swelling, which rapidly increases until it suppurates and breaks, either outside or inside of the lid margin. Few patients present with considerable pain and swelling of the whole lid.
Some persons are subject to repeated outbreaks of this furuncle inflammation.
We find it most frequently in youthful individuals of rather delicate health with a tendency to acne, or in persons addicted to free living or dissipation.
By repeated attacks it causes inflammatory changes in the Meibomian glands and is followed by fatty or chalky degeneration of their contents, it is called 'Chalazion'
