Scleral calcifications were demonstrated roentgenographically in two patients with known hyperparathyroidism and clinically normal eyes. In one of these patients, scierai calcification was evident both on plain films and with computed tomography (CT). In the second patient, a solitary plaque of calcified sciera was visible only by CT. Histopathologic examination of the eyes of a third hyperparathyroid patient who died during surgery demonstrated calcium plaques in the posterior sciera consistent with the CT appearance of the sciera in the other patients.
