Today we are able to differentiate approximately a hundred entities of intraocular inflammations and group them into anatomical types like anterior, intermediate, posterior, and panuveitis. This book will cover most of the reported entities. A few of these entities have highly typical clinical findings, so that the specialist easily may be able to determine the entity, leading to therapy. But a lot of entities develop similarities in their clinical appearance (similar endothelial precipitates, similar chorioretinal infiltrations, similar retinal necrosis) and also similar complications (elevated intraocular pressure, cataract formation, and macular edema).
