About this book


Uveitis and immunological disorders encompass a wide spectrum of potential blinding diseases that are seen in daily practice by many ophthalmologists. In recent years enormous progress has been made understanding the principal mechanisms of inflammatory and immunological processes in ocular disorders. The purpose of this volume of "Essentials in Ophthalmology" is to provide the ophthalmologist with our present understanding of the pathogenesis of the most frequent immune-mediated disorders of the eye and a practical approach to these diseases.

"Uveitis and Immunological Disorders

   -"Fills the gap between textbooks and original research publications

   - Focuses on clinical aspects of inflammatory eye diseases

   - Covers a broad spectrum, including diseases affecting the conjunctiva, sclera and cornea as well as intraocular inflammation

   - Includes basic research aspects such as immune mechanisms and genetics

   - Is quick and easy to read: highly structured with "core messages" and "summaries" for the clinician


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.
