Completely revised and updated, this book now outlines changing patterns in eye trauma, corneal surgery and glaucoma; developments in molecular genetics in uveal melanoma; and diagnostic techniques for intraocular lymphoma. Information on new treatments for vascular disease in diabetic eye disease and wet age related macular degeneration is now included and the chapter on the orbit has many new additions. Recently identified causes of inflammation in the eye including drug reactions are described, as are the effects of topical therapies in basal cell carcinoma.
Well-illustrated and practically-oriented, this book has retained its general layout and style. The visual image remains key to explaining the pathological processes and this is facilitated by full color photography throughout the text. It helps both the pathologist and ophthalmologist understand the process that a specimen must go through prior to producing a report and how these various techniques help to refine the diagnosis.
The fourth edition of Lee’s Ophthalmic Histopathology is an invaluable reference source for ophthalmic pathologists, general pathologists and ophthalmologists.
• Retains the popular, original specimen-based chapter layout
• Extensive colour illustrations of macro specimens and microspecimens
• Includes illustrations of immunohistochemistry, molecular analyses and electron microscopy
• Dr Fiona Roberts is a consultant pathologist with a special interest in Ophthalmic Pathology. During her training in pathology she undertook a period of research in ophthalmic pathology in Chicago following which she further trained in ophthalmic pathology in Glasgow with Professor Willliam Lee (the original author of the book). She has previous research interests in uveal and conjunctival melanoma and still undertakes research in toxoplasmosis (the subject of her research in Chicago). Her daily work involves reporting eye pathology specimens for the West of Scotland with a wider referral practice. She is also involved in teaching in the undergraduate medical and nursing curriculum and with trainee ophthalmologists and pathologists. She examines in pathology for the Royal College of Ophthalmologist.
She is an active member of the ophthalmic pathology community. She is a longstanding member of the British association of Ophthalmic Pathology and has completed terms as secretary and president (2013-2016) of the society. She is also an elected member of the European Ophthalmic Pathology Society since 2002 and is currently secretary and treasurer of this society.
She has been involved in publishing undergraduate medical text books including Pathology Illustrated (Editor) and Muir’s textbook of pathology (Chapter Author). She has also contributed to several ophthalmic pathology texts (in addition to Lee’s Ophthalmic Histopathology) including Eye Pathology, An illustrated guide (Chapter Author) and The Eye, Basic science in practice (Chapter Author). Other texts to which she has contributed include Adams and Graham’s Introduction to Neuropathology (Chapter Author) and Krugman’s Infectious Disease of Children (Chapter Author). She has also published over 80 original publications in journals.
• Dr Chee Koon Thum is a consultant pathologist with a special interest in Ophthalmic Pathology and Molecular Pathology. He is currently working in both Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh (RIE) and Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) in Glasgow, Scotland. He was originally trained in clinical ophthalmology and has been a member of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) for more than a decade. He continued to utilise his clinical knowledge and experience in his training of ophthalmic pathology with Dr Fiona Roberts (co-editor). He reports the eye pathology specimens in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Together with Dr Fiona Roberts, they deliver the ophthalmic pathology referral service for the rest of Scotland and Northern Ireland. He provides teaching for ophthalmology and pathology trainees. He is an active member of the British Association of Ophthalmic Pathology and has organised the annual meetings for the association. He is also the co-editor of the 3rd edition of Lee’s Ophthalmic Histopathology.
