About this book


Ophthalmic Oncology explores the unique aspects of oncologic ophthalmology as a medical and surgical discipline practiced at a comprehensive cancer center. Multi-disciplinary management of ocular, orbital and adnexal cancers are highlighted using simple and tried-and-true algorithms. In addition, ocular problems caused as a direct result of cancer treatment are reviewed using illustrative photographs and case presentations.


The content is provided by full-time ophthalmology faculty and fellows at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Experts in complementary disciplines such as ophthalmic pathology, dermatopathology, radiation oncology, radiology, and other surgical subspecialties, bring a novel perspective to each chapter. Clinical photographs and case presentations help clinicians, practicing general ophthalmologists, orbital and oculoplastics specialists, medical and surgical oncologists, and ophthalmology residents and fellows to correctly diagnose cancers of the orbit, eye, and adnexal structures, initiate appropriate management, as well as recognize and treat common ocular complications of cancer therapy.
