Posterior scleritis is an uncommon disease. Its clinical manifestations may include pain. reduced visual acuity, cellular infiltration in the aqueous and vitreous humor, serous retinal detachment, chorioretinal lesions, and disc or macular edema. The diagnosis of posterior scleritis is often difficult due to its rarity and the diversity of symptoms. However, ultrasography and computed tomography are noninvasive methods for diagnosis of posterior scleritis. We treated posterior scleritis associated with ciliochoroidal detachment and anterior uveitis with sclerotomy, drainage of ciliochoroidal fluid in a background diabetic retinopathy patient.
