Description

Histology and Histopathology of the Eye and its Adnexa provides information pertinent to the histopathology of the eye. This book presents a brief survey on the bacteriology and parasitology of the eye. Organized into three parts encompassing 20 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the normal histology of the eye. This text then deals on general pathology, with emphasis on its application to pathology of the eye. Other chapters describe the findings that lead to the pathology diagnosis of the sectioned eye. This book discusses as well the physical injuries in the eye brought about by contusion. The final chapter deals with the complications that may arise during or after any type of cataract operation, extracapsular or intracapsular extraction, discussion of a soft cataract, or after linear extraction. This book is a valuable resource for ophthalmologists and physicians. Postgraduate students specializing in histology and histopathology of the eye will also find this book useful.
