Posterior Scleritis

Clinical Features:

Common presenting features are pain, tenderness, blurred vision, proptosis and pain or restriction of eye movements. One-third of patients will have no pain. Common findings include retinal striae, exudative retinal detachment and choroidal thickening and detachments (Fig. 17.6.1). Less common manifestations are macular and disc edema, subretinal mass, hemorrhages and exudation. Diagnosis may be difficult in the absence of anterior scleritis.
