Abstract

We report a case with unilateral recurrent anterior scleritis which developed sclerochoroidal calcification at the posterior pole without any overt sign of posterior scleritis during the follow-up period of nine years. We believe that subtle posterior scleral inflammation might lead to sclerochoroidal calcification which might be dystrophic in nature.
