Imaging studies in a case of infectious scleritis after pterygium excision

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A 44-year-old woman presented with a painful red eye for 2 weeks. Ultrasound biomicroscopy and optical coherence tomography were instrumental in the diagnosis and management of this case of infectious scleritis associated with previous pterygium excision complicated by choroidal and retinal detachments.
