uveitis an update

biswas, jyotirmay, majumder, parthopratim dutta (eds.)

this book on recent advances in uveitis provides readers with up-to-date and clinically-relevant information on 18 topics that are indispensable for everyday practice. this book is meant for bridging the gap between recent developments and their incorporation into clinical use. written by global experts, the topics cover advances in diagnosis and treatment of distinct clinical varieties of uveitis.

additionally, the chapter on imaging describes the various imaging modalities that aid clinching the diagnosis with greater accuracy. role of corticosteroids, their mechanism of action and various routes of drug delivery too have been discussed in detail. optimal use of various immunomodulators, their role, dose, mechanism of action, side effects, and monitoring during patient follow-up have been elucidated in easy-to-understand tables. there are two chapters on complications in uveitis, one on glaucoma and other on choroidal neovascularization. a chapter on pediatric uveitis highlights the challenges and provides guidance to manage this special population.

2014 2015 basic and clinical science course bcsc section 9 intraocular inflammation and uvetis

intraocular inflammation and uvetisamerican academy of ophthalmology (author), ramana s. moorthy md (editor)

begins with an overview of immune-mediated eye disease, summarizing basic immunologic concepts, ocular immune responses and special topics in ocular immunology. discusses the clinical approach to uveitis and reviews noninfectious (autoimmune) and infectious forms of uveitis, with an expanded section on viral uveitis and new material on infectious and noninfectious scleritis.

enhanced detection of infectious agents by immunologic and genetic methods and biologic therapeutics are detailed. also covers endophthalmitis, masquerade syndromes, complications of uveitis and ocular aspects of aids.

upon completion of section 9, readers should be able to:

identify general and specific pathophysiologic processes that affect the structure and function of the uvea, lens, intraocular cavities, retina, and other tissues in acute and chronic intraocular inflammation
differentiate and identify infectious and noninfectious uveitic entities
choose appropriate examination techniques and relevant ancillary studies based on whether an infectious or noninfectious cause is suspected

immune modulation and anti inflammatory therapy in ocular disorders iois guidelines

by uwe pleyer (editor), jorge l. alio (editor), talin barisani-asenbauer (editor), phuc le hoang (editor), narsing a. rao (editor)
these guidelines, compiled by a panel of clinicians and scientists with a high level of expertise, aim to provide readers with the most up-to-date and comprehensive instructions on the treatment and prevention of ocular inflammation. all of the recommendations are explicitly linked to supporting evidence and graded according to the strength of that evidence, and the editors have made every effort to ensure that chapters are of a consistently high methodological quality. the guidelines for each treatment include dose and the frequency and mode of delivery. significant side-effects of treatment are identified and distinguished from those of the disease in question. suggestions are presented for the prevention both of the disease itself and of the treatment-related complications. in addition, likely future directions in treatment and prevention are identified. these guidelines will be of great practical value for all clinicians and clinical scientists with an interest in the subject.

uveitis is a complex condition with a variety of causes and clinical manifestations. certain types are extremely serious and can cause severe ocular morbidity if undetected and untreated. even experienced ophthalmologists find it a difficult and frustrating condition, with the result that it is often misdiagnosed and mistreated. the wide array of diseases that can affect the uveal tract and the impact of immunological research – with resulting discovery of new uveitis entities – mean that clinicians managing patients with uveitis require a broad knowledge not only of relevant ophthalmology, but also immunology and general medicine. this book is designed to provide trainee and practicing ophthalmologists with a user-friendly, up-to-date review of today’s body of knowledge about this difficult condition, and a practical guide to its diagnosis and management.
