Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Four patients with severe anterior scleritis that had not responded to conventional therapy were treated with cytotoxic immunosuppressive alkylating agents alone (one case) or in combination with prednisone (three cases). Two of the patients had Wegener's granulomatosis, one pyoderma gangrenosum, and one rheumatoid vasculitis. All patients responded well to this therapy with a decrease in inflammation and a healing of the sclera. Other systemic manifestations of the underlying diseases often responded well also.
