Bergstrom: Pocket Guide to Ocular Oncology and Pathology
By Chris Bergstrom
2012 (1st ed), 380 pages, 226 illus, $209 list
This handbook is designed to serve as a compact, up-to-date, and easy-to-use reference on the clinical features and pathology of ocular tumors. It comprises approximately 75 entries that cover the full spectrum of clinically encountered ocular tumors as well as tumor classification and other selected topics. Each entry addressing a given tumor or class of tumors is organized in a standard way, with information on synonyms, definition, etiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, prophylaxis, therapy, prognosis, and epidemiology. Key references are also provided. The book has the advantage of having been written by members of an ocular oncology group from a leading cancer center, and will be of great practical value for ophthalmologists and ophthalmic pathologists.

Cummings: Ophthalmic Pathology
By Thomas Cummings
2012 (1st ed), 188 pages, 268 illus, $189 list
Ophthalmic Pathology: A Concise Guide provides an introductory book of essential and fundamental information that will give the reader a solid foundation in ophthalmic pathology. The volume differs from the available classic and comprehensive ophthalmic pathology textbooks in its basic and simplified ‘one month approach’ concept. The text is rich in macroscopic and microscopic pathology images, clinical images, and bullet-point lists. Each chapter (Overview; Cornea; Conjunctiva; Eyelids; Uveal Tract; Retina; Orbit; and, Optic Nerve) includes approximately 30 color figures of common eye pathology diagnoses and also reviews the normal histology of each ocular component. An assortment of commentary related to common diagnoses and differential diagnostic considerations, clinical and pathological correlations, pearls and pitfalls, and ophthalmic pathology terminology can be found in each chapter.
Eagle: Eye Pathology
By Ralph Eagle
2011 (1st ed), 320 pages, 600 illus, $153 list

In addition, it will serve as a well-illustrated resource for residents who are studying for the OKAP examinations or Board certification in ophthalmology. Completely written and illustrated by Dr. Eagle, this single-author text is primarily designed for ophthalmology residents and the comprehensive ophthalmologist not looking for a comprehensive text on the subject.
Font: Tumors of the Eye and Ocular Adnexa (AFIP Atlas of Tumor Pathology, Series 4, Vol 5)
By Ramon L Font, J Oscar Craxatto and Narsing A Rao
2006 (1st ed), 339 pages, $135 list
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.
Hh: Eye Pathology
By Teffen Hh and Hans Grossniklaus
2015, 739 pages, 736 illus, $266 list
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.
Karcioglu: Orbital Tumors: Diagnosis and Treatment
By Zeynel Karcioglu
2014 (2nd ed), 516 pages, 349 illus, $116 list
Orbital Tumors, 2nd edition discusses advances in orbital disease and their treatment, offering readers an up-to-date, single volume reference for orbital tumors. Divided into two parts, this book covers everything from advances in oncogenesis and its relationship to orbital tumors, to medical genetics and the role of imaging in diagnosis of orbital tumors.
McLean: Tumors of the Eye and Ocular Adnexa (Vol 12)
By Ian W. McLean, Miguel N. Burnier, Lorenz E. Zimmerman and Frederick A. Jakobiec
1995, 322 pages, $56 list
This monograph offers a comprehensive review of the wide variety of tumors that occur in the eyelid, conjunctiva, retina, uveal tract, lacrimal gland and sac, orbit, and optic nerve. Over the four decades since publication of the First Series fascicle on this subject considerable advances have been made concerning the pathology, immunohistochemistry, molecular biology and behavior of ophthalmic tumors. These are covered in detail. The more lengthy discussions concern the two most important intraocular tumors, retinoblastoma and uveal melanoma, but there is considerable attention given to those tumors that are particularly associated with this site. Among these are: the sebaceous tumors of the eyelid; the rare phakomatous choristoma of the lower eyelid, (which may be confused with an adenocarcinoma); the actinically related tumors of the conjunctiva, (keratoses, carcinomas and melanomas); the lymphomas, fibrous histiocytomas and childhood rhabdomyosarcomas of the orbit; and the melanocytoma of the optic nerve head. There are shorter discussions of extraocular tumors that have similar counterparts elsewhere in the body. The classification of tumors in this fascicle is based closely on the scheme proposed by the World Health Organization. Tables are presented that give frequencies of the various types of tumors based on the AFIP experience along with data from other registries and published series from around the world. With its 420 high-quality photographs this book should be an invaluable and indispensable source for pathologists and ophthalmologists.
Naumann: Applied Pathology for Ophthalmic Microsurgeons
By G.O.H Naumann
2011 (1st ed), 424 pages, 1063 illus, $239 list
Written and edited by the world-famous expert G.O.H. Naumann, this textbook delves into the details of ocular structures such as the nuances of morphology, surgical anatomy and pathology. The text covers unique features of intraocular surgery in closed system and open eye contexts. It goes on to cover crucial aspects of restoring the anterior chamber. Then it delineates the spectrum of potential complications in (pseudo-) exfoliation-syndromes as well as the most vulnerable cell populations. Readers are also treated to the features of normal and pathologic wound healing after non-mechanical laser and mechanical inventions. Brilliant artwork and sketches illustrate the complex pathology.
Popp: Ex-vivo and In-vivo Optical Molecular Pathology
By Jurgen Popp
2014, 280 pages, $160 list
The result of a unique collaboration between clinicians, chemists and physicists, this book provides an unparalleled overview of a new generation of diagnostic tools in clinical pathology. The introductory chapters cover the present status and limitations of currently used methods, followed by an outline of promising novel spectroscopy-based technologies either under development or recently available on the market. The input from both technologists developing these new methods as well as routine clinicians familiar with practical aspects and medical relevance guarantees that this practical work is a valuable asset for a wide audience, including technical personnel and decision makers in treatment centers, experts working in companies developing diagnostic devices, and clinicians specializing in advanced diagnostic methods. Since basic researchers are increasingly adopting novel diagnostic tools developed for human use as well, this will also be of interest for biomedical research institutions with large animal facilities.
Roberts: Lee's Ophthalmic Histopathology
