posterior scleritis and lupus

Rosanna Dammacco
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystem autoimmune disease of undefined etiology and with remarkably heterogeneous clinical features. Virtually any organ system can be affected, including the eye. SLE-related eye involvement can be diagnosed in approximately one-third of the patients and is usually indicative of disease activity. An early diagnosis and the adoption of suitable therapeutic measures are necessary to prevent sight-threatening consequences, especially in patients with juvenile SLE. Periocular lesions, such as eyelid involvement and orbital inflammation, are relatively rare and, in case of orbital masses, may require a biopsy control...

PURPOSE: Posterior scleritis is a potentially blinding ocular disorder that is often difficult to diagnose because of the low incidence and varied clinical presentation. Nodular posterior scleritis can mimic a choroidal mass and pose diagnostic difficulties to clinicians. This case report and literature review aimed to evaluate the clinical presentation of nodular posterior scleritis that mimics choroidal tumor, along with the etiologies, treatment modalities, and outcomes. DESIGN: Case report and literature review...

Data included sociodemographic factors, medical history, clinical, laboratory and ultrasound findings, therapies, and outcomes...

A patient is described known with ITP, who developed an attack of angle-closure glaucoma secondary to posterior scleritis. This condition reacted well to corticosteroid treatment and antiglaucomaleus therapy serologically SLE was highly probable. In fundo there was the picture of a central retinal vein occlusion. Later the patient developed neovascularisation of the optic disc, which did not diminish after panretinal photocoagulation. In spite of cryocoagulation, a vitreous haemorrhage resulted.
