Description

Part of the new series Gems of Ophthalmology, this book provides the latest information on the clinical work-up, diagnosis and management of uveitis.

Beginning with an overview of diagnostic procedures for uveal infections, each of the following sections is dedicated to a different disorder covering both common conditions and more complex, less common infections.

Topics include intraocular tuberculosis, ocular syphilis, Lyme disease, ocular toxoplasmosis, white dot syndromes, Behcet’s disease, and much more.

The book concludes with discussion on recent advances in diagnosis and management of uveitis, biologicals in its treatment, advances in intravitreal therapeutics, and choroidal melanoma.

This comprehensive text is further enhanced by clinical and surgical photographs.

Other topics in the series include: Cornea & Sclera, Glaucoma, and Retina.
