This book presents fifty clinical cases in neuro-ophthalmology, some of which are common and some of which are rare. Each case is presented as a diagnostic and management challenge as found in clinical practice. High quality clinical photographs and images bring the cases to life alongside the diagnostic process and management decisions of an experienced specialist. A short summary of important aspects of the pathogenesis and treatment of each disease finishes each case.
Neuro-Ophthalmology: Illustrated Case Studies entertains and instructs the reader and is ideal reading for doctors in training in this area, as well as general consultant neurologists and ophthalmologists.
