This atlas covers most ocular inflammatory and infectious diseases of importance with clinical significance. It includes chapters on non-infectious diseases and chapters on infectious diseases. For each chapter, essential information regarding the clinical features, diagnosis, and management is described in the text based on the up-to-date knowledge, and more than 240 carefully selected photographs are provided. World-famous experts in this field have included as many as valuable photographs of patients as possible. New imaging tests of ultra-wide field retinal images and high-resolution optical coherence tomography are included in addition to conventional fundus photos and fluorescein angiographs. Especially, chapters on infectious diseases provide invaluable photos of rare but clinically important diseases.
Designed to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular inflammation and infection, this book is meant for the retina specialist, researchers of ocular inflammation, general ophthalmologist, resident and retina fellow.
