Summary for the Clinician

• An immune-complex mediated microangiopathy or vasculitis may play a role in the pathogenesis of scleritis

• The higher levels of complement Ci and ability of induced scleral fibroblasts to increase production of complement components may be involved in the inflammatory cascade, resulting in inflammatory cell infiltration, fibrinoid necrosis, and vascular occlusion

• The role of a cell mediated delayed hyper-sensitivity reaction is supported by the increase in T-lymphocyte helper to suppressor ratio in scleritis
