Abstract

You must read this book. Indeed, reading alone is not enough. You must study this book—study the text and especially study the beautiful color and fluorescein stereophotographs.

Did you know that choroidal nevi can cause serous and hemorrhagic detachment of the retina?—Or that a granulomatous scleritis can be confused with a choroidal malignant melanoma?—Or that benign lymphoid hyperplasia of the uvea can simulate metastatic carcinoma or malignant melanoma? It is all here—with case histories, stereophotographs, fluorescein angiography, and histopathology.

There are some shortcomings to be sure. Repetition of small amounts of material from Dr. Gass's previous text, Stereoscopic Atlas of Macular Diseases, raises the question whether or not the two texts should be combined in a future edition. Congenital retinal arteriovenous malformations probably do not qualify as intraocular tumors. The last chapter, dealing with iris tumors, is not on a par with the excellence of the rest of the book.
