Abstract

There has been an increase in the complications associated with hepatitis C. Scleritis is one of the complications of the condition that is not routinely suspected, and thus underdiagnosed or missed, leading to delay in initiation of treatment. This case report will bring that to the attention of ophthalmologists so necessary systemic therapy can be instituted in a timely fashion.
