Anterior necrotizing scleritis is a rare but potentially devastating complication of ocular surgery that most often occurs after cataract surgery in elderly patients who may have an underlying systemic autoimmune condition 1 or, less likely, an infectious cause. 2 We describe the management and outcome of a case of bilateral anterior necrotizing scleritis after postoperative infection in a 19-month-old girl who had recently undergone strabismus surgery.
