About this book

This book is a comprehensive, in-depth, and up-to-date resource on eye pathology that will be of great practical value for ophthalmic and general pathologists and ophthalmologists. Congenital abnormalities, inflammatory conditions, infections, injuries, degenerative diseases, and tumors are all covered with the aid of more than 700 images. In the case of tumors, the wide variety of neoplasms that occur in the eyelid, conjunctiva, retina, uveal tract, lacrimal gland and sac, orbit, and optic nerve are comprehensively reviewed, and the most recent knowledge on the relation between genetics and prognosis is presented. Entries on specific diseases are organized in a standard way, with information on etiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, pathological characteristics, differential diagnosis, therapy, and prognosis. The authors are all recognized experts and members of the European and American ophthalmic pathology societies.​

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is a great reference for everything related to eye pathology. … this book will most likely serve as a reference for general pathologists or pathology residents. However, because of its thorough nature, it also may serve as a review for ophthalmic pathologists. … a great book for practicing ophthalmologists who want to delve into the pathology of the diseases they treat. … It is easy to use and well organized, so finding what you need is easy and quick.” (Alan P. Martinez, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2015)
