Answer

Accurate incidence data are not available; however, rosacea is a common skin condition that disproportionately affects persons of fair-skinned European and Celtic origin. A study in Sweden revealed an incidence of 1 in 10 middle-class workers. The caseating granulomatous variant (acne agminata) may more commonly occur in people of Asian or African origin.
