History and Objectives: Due to prevalence of inflammatory spring conjunctivitis in Kashan and resistance of some patients to current therapies, the present study was conducted in order to display the effect of injected Steroids on patients suffering from the inflammatory spring conjunctivitis referred to eye clinic of Matini hospital of Kashan in 1996-97.

Materials and Methods: A semi-experimental clinical trial was carried out on 21 patients (42 eyes). Patients were non-responsive to normal treatment (Prednisolone acetate 1% drops every 2-4 hours, Nephazoline-Antazoline drops every 6 hours along with sodium chromolin every 6 hours one drop) and recurrence of the inflammation was evident after 3 months. Injection of 0.5ml (20mg) of triamcinolones acetonide at upper tares was followed for 3-7 months. Mc Nemar’s statistical analysis was performed.

Results: Minor signs (Itching, burn, tear drops and light phobia) were evident in all patients injected with Steroids (100%). The size of papia, edge of lemp decreased one month after injection. One month after injection 3 patients (14.3%) complained from recurrent inflammatory pains, which upon second injection obtained relative improvement. No side effect was observed in any patient (0%) and tolerated the therapy well.

Conclusion: In light rapid response to injected Steroid, reduction of inflammatory pains and reduction in the size of papia of back of eyelid and lemp in patients suffering from spring conjunctivitis who are resistant to current therapies, this type may become an effective and rapid therapy.
