Because the signs and symptoms of conjunctivitis are not usually disease-specific, general ophthalmologists are often challenged by the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. This book provides outstanding illustrated guidance on diagnosing and managing all aspects of acute and chronic conjunctivitis. Beginning with a thorough description of the functional anatomy of the conjunctiva, the author goes on to cover the major conjunctival inflammatory diseases, including acute infections, allergic, auto-immune, iatrogenic, chlamydial, and others. Conjunctivitis associated with systemic inflammatory conditions such as Sjogren's syndrome or bullous mucocutaneous diseases are also discussed. Whether you are a generalist or a specialist, you will benefit from a wealth of information - including practical diagnosis and treatment tables, hundreds of detail-revealing illustations, and an exhausitve bibliography - that helps you treat this complex condition.
