Abstract

 Purpose: SCLERITIS is a rare presentation of HERPES ZOSTER OPHTHALMICUS, complicated most commonly by iridocyclitis and raised intraocular pressure. These complications can recur in subsequent years, therefore they should be managed well.Case Report: We describe a female patient who developed SCLERITIS, COMPLICATED CATARACT and SECONDARY GLAUCOMA 2 years after being diagnosed by HZO. SECONDARY GLAUCOMA was managed medically, and the patient underwent extracapsular cataract extraction for the COMPLICATED CATARACT. Final visual acuity was 6/6 and IOP was 22.4 mm Hg. This is a rare report describing favorable long‑term (>20 years) prognosis for surgical management of cataract associated with HZO together with SCLERITIS, SECONDARY GLAUCOMA and post‑herpetic neuralgia.Conclusion: A favorable outcome may be attained with surgery for COMPLICATED CATARACT associated with HZO if the condition is managed optimally and intraocular inflammation is well controlled.
