It is accepted that ocular trauma may be the precipitant of non-infectious uveitis. We report the case of a patient who developed unilateral nodular anterior scleritis following ocular trauma. Infection and systemic inflammatory diseases were excluded as causes of the inflammation. Our observations suggest the possibility that ocular trauma may act as a trigger for scleritis.
