This book is a comprehensive, in-depth, and up-to-date resource on eye pathology that will be of great practical value for ophthalmic and general pathologists and ophthalmologists. Congenital abnormalities, inflammatory conditions, infections, injuries, degenerative diseases, and tumors are all covered with the aid of more than 700 images. In the case of tumors, the wide variety of neoplasms that occur in the eyelid, conjunctiva, retina, uveal tract, lacrimal gland and sac, orbit, and optic nerve are comprehensively reviewed, and the most recent knowledge on the relation between genetics and prognosis is presented.

Series: AFIP Tumor 4th edition
When a specimen representing a tumor or tumor-like lesion of the eye or ocular adnexa is received in most general surgical pathology laboratories, the immediate reaction is one of panic, because these tumors are rarely encountered and often require complex gross dissections, based on a knowledge of ocular anatomy, which most general surgical pathologists either never possessed or have long since forgotten. Drs. Font, Croxatto, and Rao state that their main objective is to emphasize the important features of these lesions that are of special interest to general and surgical pathologists. In addition to providing complete descriptions of the tumors and tumor-like lesions in the various compartments of the eye and ocular adnexa, the authors correlate the pathologic features with epidemiologic and pathogenetic observations, clinical features, differential diagnosis, and special studies including immunohistochemistry and various molecular approaches. Each anatomic site has a section on normal anatomy and histology, and there is a separate chapter on the pathologic examination of ocular specimens, so that the general pathologist can approach these uncommonly encountered specimens with confidence. Because of its scholarly, practical, well illustrated and well referenced approach, this work will appeal to pathologists and ophthalmologists alike.
