Uveitis: A Quick Guide to Essential Diagnosis

Editors: C. Stephen Foster, Stephen D. Anesi, Peter Y. Chang

Focusing solely on uveitis care, this quick reference guide will provide a compiled and easy to navigate differential diagnosis – making an often daunting task for clinicians easier, quicker, and more accurate by using a concise outline format to list the most critical aspects of a disease entity.
Uveitis: A Quick Guide to Essential Diagnosis opens with a Diagnosis Flowchart, so that the reader can select the most probable diagnoses based on patient’s history and exam. From there the reader can then quickly turn to the corresponding chapter to learn about the most critical aspects of the disease entity: epidemiology, characteristic exam and imaging findings, prognostic factors, and treatment options.


This book is written for ophthalmic care providers including general ophthalmologists, subspecialists, fellows, residents and optometrists and features research and contributions from institutions that are global leaders in uveitis care.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Uveitis – Second Edition

Editors: Foster CS, Vitale A. 2012

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.
