Answer

Systemic treatment with or without topical antimicrobial therapy always is required. Differentiating infectious scleritis from noninfectious scleritis is important because corticosteroid therapy and immunosuppressive therapy (often used in noninfectious autoimmune scleritis) are contraindicated in active infections.
