Scleritis is a rare disease and the incidence of bilateral posterior scleritis is even rarer. Unfortunately, misdiagnosis of the latter is common due to its insidious onset, atypical symptoms, and varied manifestations. We report here a case of bilateral posterior scleritis that presented with acute eye pain and intraocular hypertension, and was initially misdiagnosed as acute primary angle closure. Expanding the literature on such cases will not only increase physicians' awareness but also help to improve accurate diagnosis.
