Book Description

    Ophthalmic Pathology: A Concise Guide provides an introductory book of essential and fundamental information that will give the reader a solid foundation in ophthalmic pathology. The volume differs from the available classic and comprehensive ophthalmic pathology textbooks in its basic and simplified ‘one month approach’ concept. The text is rich in macroscopic and microscopic pathology images, clinical images, and bullet-point lists.

    Each chapter (Overview; Cornea; Conjunctiva; Eyelids; Uveal Tract; Retina; Orbit; and, Optic Nerve) includes approximately 30 color figures of common eye pathology diagnoses and also reviews the normal histology of each ocular component. An assortment of commentary related to common diagnoses and differential diagnostic considerations, clinical and pathological correlations, pearls and pitfalls, and ophthalmic pathology terminology can be found in each chapter. Other topics include: the fundamental pathology of glaucoma, trauma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and the phacomatoses; commonly used histochemical stains employed in ophthalmic pathology; and basic prosection of enucleation and evisceration specimens.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Introduction to Ophthalmic Pathology 12 July 2013
By Jean Descemet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A small book, easily carried in the pocket of a white coat, and readable in a weekend, that contains everything one would need to be an active contributor to ophthalmic pathology signouts. Ophthalmic terminology is explained early and often to get the budding pathology resident or medical student up to speed.

This is one of the most readable pathology texts of any field by one of the foremost pathologists. Would highly recommend for anyone preparing for a month of neuropathology where ophthalmic pathology is concerned, also very effective for the budding dermatopathologist studying peri-ocular lesions.
