The Academy's Basic and Clinical Science Course™ is ophthalmology's definitive source of clinical information. Practicing ophthalmologists and residents worldwide use the BCSC® to ensure the highest-quality patient care. Lean on the 100+ ophthalmologists who target the most beneficial clinical updates for this key ophthalmic reference each year.

Section 9 begins with an overview of immune-mediated eye disease, summarizing basic immunologic concepts, ocular immune responses and special topics in ocular immunology.

It provides an interactive uveitis diagnostic algorithm and a chapter covering scleritis. Discusses the clinical approach to uveitis and reviews noninfectious (autoimmune) and infectious forms of uveitis, with an expanded section on viral uveitis and material on infectious and noninfectious scleritis.

Enhanced detection of infectious agents by immunologic and genetic methods and biologic therapeutics are detailed. Also covers endophthalmitis, masquerade syndromes, complications of uveitis and ocular aspects of AIDS.

Increase your understanding with three fundamental surgical technique videos and one diagnostic video. Print users have access to the videos.

Upon completion of Section 9, readers should be able to:
• Identify general and specific pathophysiologic processes that affect the structure and function of the uvea, lens, intraocular cavities, retina, and other tissues in acute and chronic intraocular inflammation.
• Differentiate and identify infectious and noninfectious uveitic entities.
• Choose appropriate examination techniques and relevant ancillary studies based on whether an infectious or noninfectious cause is suspected.
