RGD DISEASE ONTOLOGY - ANNOTATIONS

RGD uses the Human Disease Ontology (DO, https://disease-ontology.org/) for disease curation across species. RGD automatically downloads each new release of the ontology on a monthly basis. Some additional terms which are required for RGD's curation purposes but are not currently covered in the official version of DO have been added. As corresponding terms are added to DO, these custom terms are retired and the DO terms substituted in existing annotations and subsequently used for curation.

Definition:A scleral disease that is characterized by painful inflammation with surface nodule formation of the episcleral tissues that, importantly, spares the sclera itself and has_symptom pain, red eyes, photophobia, tearing, blurry vision, and appearance of eye surface irregularity. Nodular episcleritis is typically self-limited and may be caused by vascular congestion within the superficial episcleral plexus. (DO)
Synonyms:xref: ICD10CM:H15.12;   ICD9CM:379.02
