Diagnosis & Treatment of Uveitis

by C Stephen Foster, Albert T Vitale

The book discusses on various approaches made to diagnose and treat uveitis. It deals with certain concepts of chronic inflammation and the ways to control them. It also includes clinical trials and evidence-based medicine in the medical management of uveitis, emergent viral infections, other vector-borne parasitic infections, pediatric uveitis and pregnancy and uveitis. Several new ocular and systemic imaging tools such as color fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography, optical coherence tomography, multifocal electroretinography, slit-lamp photography and so on are discussed in detail. All these tools used for ocular imaging studies help in determining the activity and extent of intraocular inflammation, detection of ocular complications and causes of visual loss, as well as monitoring response to therapy. The book divided into six sections which include basic principles, principles of diagnosis and therapy, the uveitis syndromes-infectious and noninfectious uveitis, the uveitis syndromes-masquerade syndromes, the uveitis syndromes-autoimmune and other uveitic entities.
