Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Caroline Minkus, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book presents brief clinical vignettes of ocular pathology accompanied by clinical pictures and images of the histopathological appearance of the finding presented in each case. It covers a broad range of both benign and pathological findings, and offers clear pictures for easy recognition.
Purpose: The purpose is to illustrate lesions of the eye and adnexa so clinicians will readily recognize these conditions in the clinical setting. The book meets the objectives well.
Audience: The book is written for residents and practitioners in ophthalmology. The authors are credible authorities in the field of ocular pathology.
Features: The book illustrates a broad variety of common and "don't miss" clinical findings of the eye and adnexa. Each finding is presented as a case with a clinical vignette and two or more illustrations. The best aspect of each case is that it has both a clinical picture and a histopathological picture to accompany the vignette. Each illustration is thereby put into clinical perspective, which makes it more easily identifiable in the clinical setting. The pictures are very high quality, and key histopathological features are highlighted on the reverse of each page, along with the name of the clinical entity. The cases are organized by area of the eye and adnexa, and there is an appendix where cases are searchable by case finding. The full color images are beautiful representations of the findings. They are definitely the highlight of the book. The only shortcoming is that the book provides only cursory information about the findings. The focus is on histopathology, but slightly more clinical detail would be nice. It also assumes a functional knowledge of pathology, which is likely an appropriate expectation for the intended audience, but readers should be aware of this.
Assessment: This is definitely a useful resource for identifying clinical findings and getting a better idea of how to proceed with diagnosis and management. The illustrations are beautiful and clear, and the organization is logical as well as helpful.
