Section 4 presents materials in two parts: Part I, Ophthalmic Pathology; and Part II, Intraocular Tumors.
Part I uses a hierarchy that moves from general to specific to help derive a differential diagnosis for a specific tissue.
Part II is a compilation of selected clinical aspects of importance to the general ophthalmologist.
Additionally, this section has a variety of images and videos. Both print and eBook users have access to the videos.
Upon completion of Section 4, readers should be able to:
- Describe a structured approach to understanding major ocular conditions based on a hierarchical framework of topography, disease process, general diagnosis and differential diagnosis.
- Summarize the steps in handling ocular specimens for pathologic study, including obtaining, dissecting, processing, and staining tissues.
-Identify those ophthalmic lesions that indicate systemic disease and are potentially life-threatening.
