Inflammatory changes can affect almost all adnexal, ocular, and orbital tissues. The infectious/noninfectious inflammatory process may manifest as a keratitis or vasculitis, iritis, ischemic papillitis or retrobulbar optic neuritis, and orbital vasculitis. Other complications may include retinitis or encephalitis.
