Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John W. Chandler, MD, FACS (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: The fourth edition of this atlas and textbook expands the previous edition from three to four volumes and adds many new histologic figures and replaces others. The authors have made special efforts to add new material from papers published since the last edition a decade ago.
Purpose: As in previous editions, this one is organized by anatomic site and describes pathologic processes and entities involving each site with the purpose of serving as a definitive text and pathology atlas. This approach provides an authoritative and comprehensive pathology textbook for the eye. If the reader uses this textbook from the context of looking for information by anatomic site, this is an especially worthwhile reference source.
Audience: The book is for ophthalmologists, ophthalmic pathologists, and residents in these specialties. The rich mixture of clinical and pathological information and illustrations assists in making meaningful correlations for both specialties. The authors are among the leading authorities in ophthalmic pathology in the world.
Features: The wealth of illustrations is a strength of the book and includes clinical pictures, x-rays, and light and electron microscopy preparations. The reference lists are extensive but could be more current. The index is exceedingly detailed and a bit clumsy but it is the only way to study the complete ocular involvement of a specific disease. Each volume has a section of color figures that are very useful. The first and last chapters of the textbook are especially important teaching instruments. The first describes pathological examination and the last the basic pathological mechanisms operative in the eye.
Assessment: A comprehensive understanding of pathology and pathological processes are among the characteristics that distinguish superb ophthalmologists. Pathology is a fundamental discipline and the fourth edition of this book is an important instrument for learning or enhancing knowledge in the field. As good as the previous editions have been, the fourth has an added dimension of excellence.
