This 144-page monograph is one of 8 in an expanding series by BMJ Books.
It is a multiauthored treatise with 11 authors. It consists of 10 chapters,
beginning with discussion of the anatomical and biochemical aspects of the
sclera, followed by classification of scleral inflammation, pathology of scleritis,
and chapters on episcleritis, anterior scleritis, posterior scleritis, infectious
and surgically induced scleritis, complications of scleritis, investigation
and management of scleritis, and surgical management of scleritis. It is a
well-written, well-illustrated monograph with color photographs beautifully
interspersed throughout the body of the text rather than "tipped in" in the
front, middle, or back of the text.
