This comprehensive book appears as an essential to improve our management of ocular inflammatory disorders.

Subsequent chapters discuss these and other systemic imaging techniques for defining uveitis entities in conjunction with diagnostic criteria, pathogenesis, differential diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of various uveitis entities. Second part of the book deals with a number of common specific uveitis entities, such as “Anterior Non-granulomatous Uveitis”, “Fuchs’ Uveitis and Posner-Schlossman Syndrome”, “Anterior Granulomatous Uveitis”, “Behçet’s Disease” etc. Part three deals with the complications of uveitis and their surgical management. This text represents a major advance in helping to unravel the clinical features and complications that occur in patients with ocular inflammation and will be a valuable compendium to all those interested in treating patients with significant inflammatory eye diseases. The information and the large number of illustrations included make it a very useful book both for students and general ophthalmologists as well as for uveitis specialists.
