    2016-2017 Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC), Section 04: Ophthalmic Pathology and Intraocular Tumors

    by American Academy of Ophthalmology (Author), Robert H. Rosa Jr. MD (Editor)


    Major revision for 2016-2017!

    This year Section 4 received updates to the conjunctiva, cornea, melanocytic and angiomatous chapters. Section 4 presents materials in two parts: Part I, Ophthalmic Pathology; and Part II, Intraocular Tumors. Part I uses a hierarchy that moves from general to specific to help derive a differential diagnosis for a specific tissue. Part II is a compilation of selected clinical aspects of importance to the general ophthalmologist. Additionally, this section has been enhanced with a variety of new images and four videos. Both print and eBook users have access to the videos.

    Upon completion of Section 4, readers should be able to:

    *Describe a structured approach to understanding major ocular conditions based on a hierarchical framework of topography, disease process, general diagnosis and differential diagnosis
    *Summarize the steps in handling ocular specimens for pathologic study, including obtaining, dissecting, processing, and staining tissues
    *Identify those ophthalmic lesions that indicate systemic disease and are potentially life threatening
