Abstract

Posterior scleritis is a rare and often unknown condition that can simulate many conditions including intraocular tumor or orbital pathology. We report the case of a 44-year-old patient with left eye pain and redness followed by a significant decrease in visual acuity. Clinical examination showed papillary hyperemia, chorioretinal folds at the posterior pole, venous tortuosity, and absence of hyalitis or vasculitis in the fundus oculi associated angiography retinal. Orbital-cerebral MRI and B ultrasound allowed the diagnosis of posterior scleritis
