Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John W. Chandler, MD, FACS (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: This book on retinal conditions and diagnostic testing for diseases of the retina combines extensive clinical photographs and fluorescein angiograms with a modest amount of text.
Purpose: The editors consider this a color atlas that arises from the observation that many diagnoses come from clinical appearances. From this focus, the editors have classified some retinal conditions. While the classification attempts are less successful, the color depictions of retinal disorders, many covering the spectrum of presentations for an individual condition, are laudatory.
Audience: Ophthalmologists and clinical trainees in ophthalmology will find this book useful. The contributors are from Europe and the United States.
Features: It is filled with good to high quality fundus photographs and fluorescein angiograms. Unfortunately, many of the figures are out of order and do not match the text. Each chapter has adequate numbers of relevant references and the index is detailed. The use of large numbers of high quality color clinical photographs is the best feature of the book.
Assessment: This is a nice book for readers interested in retinal disorders. However, the reader needs to be prepared for the frustration of dealing with the problems of mismatches between the figures and text references to figures. It is too bad that this problem was not discovered and corrected prior to publication.
