PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to describe the clinical features of infectious scleritis with distinct inciting events and to analyze the factors associated with poor visual outcome. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the predisposing factors, clinical findings, isolated organisms, complications, and outcomes of patients with infectious scleritis examined between January 2003 and December 2012 at the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taiwan. RESULTS: Forty-five (94%) of 48 patients with infect...

PURPOSE: To describe the epidemiology of patients with infectious scleritis and identify factors associated with poor visual prognosis. METHODS: Retrospective review of inciting factors, causative organisms, and visual outcomes of patients with infectious scleritis. RESULTS: Fifty-five patients (56 eyes) with confirmed infectious scleritis were included. The median time from inciting event to scleritis symptoms was 1.9 months. Eyes with a history of pterygium surgery had a longer time from surge...

A 44-year-old woman presented with a painful red eye for 2 weeks. Ultrasound biomicroscopy and optical coherence tomography were instrumental in the diagnosis and management of this case of infectious scleritis associated with previous pterygium excision complicated by choroidal and retinal detachments.

Abstract We sought to describe the clinical features, responsible pathogens, management, and prognosis of infectious scleritis after pterygium excision. A retrospective study through review of medical records of patients diagnosed with infectious scleritis after pterygium excision over a 10-year period at our institution. A total of 16 cases of infectious scleritis after pterygium excision was identified. Among them, eight were associated with sclerokeratitis, and six had multifocal scleral nodu...

AIMS—To report the special clinical manifestations and determine the appropriate management of infectious scleral ulceration. METHODS—A retrospective study was performed on 30 eyes with infectious scleral ulceration. Information was recorded on patients' age, onset and course of disease, pathogenic organism, clinical presentations, methods of diagnosis, treatment, and outcome. RESULTS—10 cases (33.3%) were accompanied by corneal involvement. Subconjunctival abscess was noted in 16 cases (53.3%)....

Objective: To assess the precipitating factors, clinical course, and treatment of 11 cases of severe intraocular infections of radionecrosis after pterygium excision in an attempt to minimize the devastating ocular sequelae. Design and Setting: From the database of cases of radionecrosis at Royal Perth (Australia) Hospital and Lions Eye Institute, Perth, we identified 11 cases of severe intraocular infection complicating radionecrosis. We reviewed the case notes and the available radiotherapy re...
