Posterior Scleritis

MH is a 21-year-old man who complained of pain behind his left eye and reduction in vision. Examination found a slightly elevated lesion temporal to the macula. A malignant tumor was included among the diagnostic possibilities. B-scan revealed choroidal and lateral rectus tendon thickening (Fig. 79). This picture was felt most consistent with posterior scleritis with involvement of the lateral rectus tendon and the patient responded rapidly to a tapering dose of prednisone.
