This monograph presents a helpful summary of the anatomy and physiologic characteristics of the choroid and of the author's extensive clinical experience using video fluorescein angiography in the study of choroidal disorders, as well as a review of the literature through 1990. The principal advantage of video fluorescein angiography, as the author points out, is its ability to record images in rapid temporal sequence. This is of particular importance at the beginning of choroidal filling, when the overlapping layers of choroidal vessels can be distinguished from one another because they are not yet obscured by fluorescein leaking from the choriocapillaris.

The first half of the monograph presents a well-referenced description of choroidal anatomy and physiologic characteristics and reports the author's fluorescein angiographic findings in a study of 100 normal individuals. The second half presents 12 clinical cases as examples of disorders that are considered by the author to represent disturbances
