  • About this book

In recent years enormous progress has been made in understanding the principal mechanisms of inflammatory and immunological processes in ocular disorders. The purpose of this second Uveitis volume of Essentials in Ophthalmology is to provide the ophthalmologist with the most current understanding of the pathogenesis of the most frequent immune-mediated disorders of the eye and a practical approach to these diseases.

This book fills the gap between textbooks and original research publications and focuses on clinical aspects of inflammatory eye diseases. It covers a broad spectrum, including diseases affecting the conjunctiva, sclera and cornea, as well as intraocular inflammation, and it includes basic research aspects, such as immune mechanisms and genetics. The book is quick and easy to read with highly structured core messages and summaries for the clinician, and the topics covered are different from the first volume.

This publication will serve not only as a valuable source of up-to-date information for ophthalmologists but will also be of interest to pediatricians, specialists in internal medicine and dermatologists confronted with inflammatory eye diseases.<
