The accurate diagnosis of anterior segment diseases relies on an ophthalmologist's ability to recognize a specific clinical sign or signs that are consistent with a given disease entity. Our education and clinical experience allow us to quickly recognize many common and some less common anterior segment diseases. Inevitably in clinical practice, however, we encounter patients who present a diagnostic challenge. This occurs either because of unfamiliarity with the particular disease process, or an atypical presentation of a common disease process. Anterior Segment Disease: A Diagnostic Color Atlas provides pictorial examples intended to assist the clinician in making accurate diagnoses of common and uncommon anterior segment diseases.
