OBJECTIVES: To report the first three cases of spontaneous resolution of chalazia after 3 to 5 years. METHODS: Patients with chalazia who visited Honda Eye Clinic were observed and treated between 1991 and 2008. Chalazia were diagnosed by deliberate palpation of lids and observation of external appearance of lids. Histopathologic examination of excised specimens was performed to confirm the diagnosis. All data were obtained from the regular daily clinical practices and recordings with informed consent. RESULTS: Three chalazia completely resolved without medications or surgical interventions after 3 to 5 years. Excisions of chalazia of patients aged older than 50 years were few. CONCLUSIONS: Chalazion may be a self-limiting disorder even in the long-term.
