Stellate neuroretinitis associated with posterior scleritis.

Abstract

PURPOSE To describe two cases of stellate neuroretinitis associated with posterior scleritis. METHODS Retrospective observational case series. RESULTS Two middle-aged female patients presented with unilateral decreased vision and clinical findings consistent with stellate neuroretinitis. A thorough diagnostic evaluation for known causes of neuroretinitis was negative in each case. Radiography, ultrasonography, and fluorescein angiography revealed findings consistent with a diagnosis of posterior scleritis in each patient. CONCLUSION This is the first report of posterior scleritis causing stellate neuroretinitis. In patients with stellate neuroretinitis of unknown etiology, posterior scleritis should be considered in the differential diagnosis.
