Anterior scleritis following intravitreal injections in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis: A case report.

Abstract Surgically induced scleritis is a rare complication following ophthalmologic surgery such as cataract surgery, pterygium excision, strabismus surgery, and retinal detachment repair. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the connective tissue disease most commonly associated with scleritis.

AB  - RATIONALE: Surgically induced scleritis is a rare complication following
      ophthalmologic surgery such as cataract surgery, pterygium excision, strabismus
      surgery, and retinal detachment repair. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the
      connective tissue disease most commonly associated with scleritis. PATIENT
      CONCERNS: A 70-year-old woman visited our clinic with complaint of visual
      disturbance, ocular pain, and conjunctival injection in her right eye of 1
      month's duration. She had a stable state of rheumatoid factor positive RA and had
      a history of multiple intravitreal injections placed in the symptomatic right eye
      due to age-related macular degeneration. DIAGNOSES: Anterior scleritis induced by
      multiple intravitreal injections. INTERVENTIONS: Topical and systemic steroids
      were administered. OUTCOMES: Her symptoms and signs were relieved and no
      significant recurrence has been occurred with the maintenance of low dose oral
      steroid. LESSONS: Surgically induced scleritis can also be induced by not only
      major surgical trauma but also by relatively minor trauma such as intravitreal
      injection (especially in patients who have connective tissue disease such as RA).
