About this book

Introduction

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.
