This article describes a 7-month-old infant with posterior scleritis, diagnosed on the basis of B-scan ultrasonography and computed tomography. The patient was initially diagnosed with preseptal cellulitis and endophthalmitis. Posterior scleritis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute orbital inflammation in children younger than 1 year.
