Reviews


“Since the first edition of this book was published in 2005, there have been many advances in the field of orbital tumors … . The purpose is to address these advances, an increasingly important objective as physicians are able to identify orbital disease at an earlier stage, giving rise to the need for treatment options at any stage of disease. … The audience is practicing orbital surgeons (namely, oculoplastic surgeons).” (Marie Somogyi, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2015)

"The book is … multi-authored which allows for a spread of knowledge across a wide field of relatively rare conditions. … In summary, Orbital Tumors by Karcioglu is a very well-written and nicely illustrated book. It covers the subject comprehensively, and is current and a most approachable textbook. It would be a very useful reference for the orbital specialist, of significant interest to the generalist and an ideal text for trainees. In my opinion, the book should be held by all eye department libraries." (Paul M Rosser, Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology, Vol. 36, 2008)

"The book is finalized by an excellent overview of the current surgical and radiological management techniques, as well as recent developments in chemotherapy. … It is a pleasure to read this comprehensive work as it is most educative for everyone dealing with orbital pathology from a clinical as well as from a scientific point of view. It certainly will have its place in every eye center, even those not directly involved in the treatment of orbital diseases." (Rudolf F. Guthoff, Ophthalmologica, Vol. 221 (5), 2007)
