Answer

Because scleritis can be associated with systemic disorders, make a routine inquiry that covers various bodily systems, as follows:

  • Dermatologic (eg, skin, hair, nails)
  • Respiratory
  • Cardiac
  • Genitourinary
  • Rheumatologic
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Neurologic
  • Hematologic and lymphatic
  • Pulmonary
  • Ear, nose, sinus, and throat
