Nodular episcleritis - External and Internal Eye
Most cases are idiopathic; however, 26%-36% of patients have an associated underlying systemic condition. Unlike the diffuse form of the disease, most episodes of nodular episcleritis are of a more indolent and longer duration, and may require topical and/or systemic treatment.
The incidence is higher in women and is more common in the fourth to fifth decades. Recurrences may be of either the diffuse type or the nodular type of episcleritis.
