Intraocular Tumors
An Atlas and Textbook
Second edition
by Jerry A. Shields

Intraocular Tumors is a comprehensive pictorial and textual guide to the clinical features, pathology, diagnosis, and management of intraocular tumors and pseudotumors.

The book features 2,346 photographs and surgical drawings—2,084 in full color—that depict the clinical variations, histopathologic characteristics, and treatment of all benign and malignant lesions that affect the uveal tract, retina, and other intraocular structures. This edition is greatly expanded and thoroughly updated and contains over 50 percent new material.

Each entity is presented in an easy-to-follow format: a concise description with references on the left-hand page and six illustrations on the right-hand page. The detail-revealing photographs vividly depict the gross and microscopic features that distinguish each condition. Professional drawings and intraoperative photographs demonstrate key surgical principles and procedures.
