This comprehensive book focuses on eyelid, lacrimal and orbital lesions, covering a wide variety of common and rare diseases and correlating their clinical, radiological and pathological aspects. It presents a large number of illustrative cases, with a discussion of the clinical history, examination, the imaging and pathology findings, differential diagnosis and management along with a take home message for each. Further, it offers clear guidance on the diagnosis and management of orbital and adnexal lesions. This book is a valuable learning tool for residents and trainee fellows in ophthalmology, as well as for trainees in radiology and pathology. It is also relevant to young ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons, practicing ophthalmologists, radiologists, and pathologists.
• Covers eyelid, lacrimal and orbital lesions, including their anatomy
• Illustrates clinical case scenarios with easy-to-understand clinical algorithms such as CLOSE [C-clinical process, L-location, O-onset, S-signs and symptoms, E-epidemiology] to assist clinicians in arriving at a differential diagnosis
• Includes useful tips for the diagnosis and management of adnexal and orbital lesions
• Provides pictorial illustrations for each case, as well as relevant radiological images and pathological slide images to further enhance understanding
