Clinical Cases in Ophthalmology

Clinical Cases in Ophthalmology This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This concise and easy-to-read book will be useful to all ophthalmology residents. It succinctly covers both rare and common diseases of the eye. Each case begins with an illustrative color clinical photograph, followed by a discussion of the pertinent findings, a differential diagnosis, diagnostic workup, management options, and the prognosis. The case usually concludes with a few tips and 1 or 2 references. This is an excellent quick review for the Ophthalmic Knowledge Assessment Program examination. However, the title is somewhat misleading. The reader is not provided with a clinical history associated with the photograph. Fortunately, the photographs are classic enough that the history of the case can usually be inferred. Future editions might be improved by presenting the photographs as "unknowns" and not revealing the disease process until the applicable findings have been described and discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
