This is a collection of 100 cases of retinal vascular and macular disease in a text of 159 pages and 100 accompanying slides. For each case there is first a "Case Report" section giving the pertinent history of the patient. Next is a "Description" section outlining the fundus and fluorescein findings on the 35-mm slides.
