47 Possible Causes for Scleral Thickening

  • Retinal Degeneration-Nanophthalmos-Glaucoma Syndrome

    . • A smaller than normal optic vesicle growing from the forebrain may be the cause of the reduced size of the eye, and scleral thickening could be explained by the development[] Abnormal thickening of the scleral connective tissue is often observed (summary by Awadalla et al., 2014 ).For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of nanophthalmos, see[] No prophylactic sclerostomy was done; however during surgery it was noticed that the scleral coat was thickened.[]

  • Optic Disc Drusen

    Scleral and choroidal thickening are usually present.[] Thickened sclera with prominent scleral vessels was described in affected family members.[] There is diffuse scleral thickening, macular schisis of the outer retinal layers, and drusen may be present in the optic nerve.[]

  • Congenital Exophthalmos

    Bernardino ME, Zimmerman RD, Citrin CM, Davis DO (1977) Scleral thickening: a CT sign of orbital pseudotumor. AJR 129: 703–706 Google Scholar 16.[]

  • Scleral Staphyloma

    The scleral shortening might cause the SRD to decrease because its procedure changed the foveal scleral thickening.[] […] thinning and melting • Cause is ischemia Posterior scleritis • Inflammation with thickening of posterior sclera • Primary or secondary extension of anterior scleritis • Not[] Maruko et al. [ 6 ] reported that relative scleral thickening at the fovea might cause the SRD in tilted disc syndrome.[]

  • Necrobiotic Xanthogranuloma

    Repeat ultrasonography showed complete resolution of the scleral thickening. Her skin lesions regressed and the paraproteinaemia also resolved.[]

  • Uveal Disease

    thickening.[] Increased scleral thickness may hamper the escape of aqueous by the uveo-scleral route.[] Certain scleral characteristics that may influence protein and fluid egress from the eye include scleral thickness, scleral composition, and the number of scleral emissary[]

  • Panuveitis

    Ultrasonography revealed diffuse scleral thickening.[]

  • Scleritis and Episcleritis

    Cross bar by gap containing fluid in sub-Tenon space – CT SCAN: Post scleral thickening 35. POSTERIOR SCLERITIS USG / CT FINDINGS Thickening of posterior sclera 36.[] Scleral, episcleral, and conj vessels are engorged. Scleral edema/thickening may be present. What are the signs of posterior scleritis?[] The elongated hyporeflective area (blue arrow) could indicate edema in the presence of a thickened sclera. In this case, it was due to a scleral plaque.[]

  • Phthisis Bulbi

    thickening, cyclitic membrane extends from one ciliary body behind the lens to the other ciliary body, complete detachment of retina; also ossification or bone formation[] Typically disorganization of intraocular contents, opaque media, corneal scars, exudate in anterior and posterior chambers, advanced cataracts, destruction of vitreous, scleral[]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa 9

    There is diffuse scleral thickening, macular schisis of the outer retinal layers, and drusen may be present in the optic nerve.[]
