MalaCards based summary: Scleritis, also known as scleritis, unspecified, is related to arthritis and uveitis. An important gene associated with Scleritis is IL5 (interleukin 5 (colony-stimulating factor, eosinophil)), and among its related pathways are Immune response Oncostatin M signaling via JAK Stat in human cells and IL-9 Signaling and its Primary Biological Effects in Different Immune Cell Types. The drug medrysone and the compounds tranilast and methylcellulose have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, neutrophil and thyroid, and related mouse phenotypes are liver/biliary system and craniofacial.
