The present case refers to a patient who had complaints of loud snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness with skin lesions in legs and feet and uncomfortable itchy sensation in eyes. The skin lesions were compatible with a diagnosis of Schamberg's disease and the ophthalmic complaints were possibly a variant of floppy eyelid syndrome. Application of overnight bilevel positive airway pressure therapy resulted in dramatic improvement in the ophthalmic complaints. Further on after regular use of bilevel positive airway pressure therapy no new capillary hemorrhages were observed.
