The Ocular Inflammatory Disease and Uveitis Manual is a practical, concise clinical reference for resident and practicing ophthalmologists and optometrists treating uveitis patients and an excellent review for the OKAP exam and ophthalmology and optometry boards. Designed for quick point-of-care reference, the book features numerous full-color photographs and bulleted how-to instructions for workup and treatment of each disorder. The state-of-the-art coverage of medical and surgical treatment includes drugs expected to be approved in 2010.

The manual is organized into anterior, intermediate, and posterior disease, plus separate sections for corneal and sclera inflammation and infection masquerading syndromes. All topics are further divided into autoimmune and infectious sections, for quick lookup of a disorder.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dmitry Pyatetsky, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: The book could be described as the essentials of clinical ocular inflammatory disease and uveitis. It outlines and explains all important disease entities as well as basic science principles, overall approach to a patient, and medical and surgical management. As such, it functions as a short textbook on the subject without any references. It is well suited as a quick study, for example, for a resident on a uveitis rotation or a uveitis/retina fellow early in the academic year who wants to cover a lot of information quickly, leaving in-depth study of the subject for later. Multiple tables, text boxes, and illustrations help organize the material in a logical and easy-to-understand manner.
Purpose: The purpose is to create a "practical compendium akin to the Wills Eye Manual" or other on-call guidebooks. While this objective is worthwhile, the book does not quite meet it. It is simply not organized as an on-call guide; rather, it is structured as an short textbook of essentials. That said, the book is lightweight and has a good index, making it easy to carry and reference as needed.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is written for uveitis trainees, both residents and fellows. However, it also can be useful for trainees in retina as well as practicing general ophthalmologists or other subspecialists who see patients with uveitis and would like to be able to diagnose and treat less complex cases, and understand how, when, and why to refer the more complex ones.
Features: The book covers the entire spectrum of ocular inflammatory disease. It contains a chapter on the essentials of immunology and dedicates separate chapters to diagnostic and ancillary testing. The bulk of the book covers intraocular inflammatory disease, organized by anatomical site of inflammation, with a separate chapter on HIV-related issues. Medical and surgical management is covered in two separate chapters, albeit with insufficient illustrations and too much material to make it a useful on-call manual, although it has use as a mini-reference. The book does have a chapter on orbital inflammation, which is not always included in the realm of ocular inflammatory disease, but should be, since there is a great deal of overlap in presentation and treatment of intraocular and orbital inflammatory diseases. Several of the chapters have plenty of illustrations, but not all chapters are well illustrated. Given that the book is a distilled essentials of ocular inflammatory disease, it would be better to have actual references in place of the suggested readings at the end of the book.
Assessment: Overall, this book meets the needs of anyone interested in a well-organized and easy-to-understand survey of ocular inflammatory disease, realizing that it is neither an in-depth study of the field nor a quick on-call guide. As such, the book does fill a niche — there are not many other modern books like it.
