A 45-year-old female asked:
I had scleritis and keratitis for 6 months last year and was treated. now i may have optic neuritis and an mri is scheduled. what can cause all 3?

Common Dz for all 3?: There is no one single disease process that links all 3 of those problems together under one roof that I'm aware of. Scleritis and keratitis....sure, why not. But ON is a totally different entity and is really the sine qua non for demyelinating disorders such as MS and other problems; Devic's Disease, etc. Good luck.
