Written as a practical guide for the diagnosis and treatment of uveitis, this text provides uveitis specialists, practicing ophthalmologists, ophthalmology residents and fellows with the appropriate diagnostic testing and evidenced-based therapeutic options for managing patients afflicted with these conditions. Written and edited by leaders in the fields of ophthalmology, rheumatology, internal medicine, infectious disease, and oncology, each chapter addresses the latest advances in the field: from the advent of PCR technology, intraocular depot steroid implants, neoplastic and infectious diseases masquerading as uveitis, and the use of systemic immunomoduatory therapies (including biologic agents/humanized monoclonal antibodies).
Dr. George Papaliodis is Director of the Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Service at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and a Diplomate of the American Boards of Internal Medicine and Ophthalmology. He is also an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School and specializes in immunology and uveitis cataracts.
