Brief Summary:
The ocular surface may be the seat of an inflammatory process in many pathology as vernal keratoconjunctivitis. It has been shown that inflammatory cytokines produced by the cells themselves and the constituent cells of the target organ, are the main factors that cause inflammation. The main objective of our study was to compare the concentration of 40 cytokines in vernal keratoconjunctivitis and in control subjects.

    Comparaison of concentration of 40 cytokines in tears between healthy children and children with vernal keratoconjunctivitis


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Validation of normal range of cytokines in tears of healthy children [ Time Frame: at 6 month ]
  2. Modification of the inflammatory profile according to the clinical severity and treatment [ Time Frame: at 6 month ]
