    Review Questions in Ophthalmology: A Question and Answer Book ( 1,050 mcqs )

    Review Questions in Ophthalmology: A Question and Answer Book
    Publisher:Lippincott Williams & Wilkins | Pages:550 | 2004-09-01 | ISBN:0781752035 | PDB | 68 MB

    Product Description

    Updated for its Second Edition, this question-and-answer review book offers a concise review of ophthalmology. It combines a review of basic ophthalmology with real-life clinical cases and multiple-choice questions with answers and explanations. More than 400 clinical photographs, fluorescein angiograms, and CT, MRI, and ultrasound images help readers master this visually oriented specialty. This edition has over 100 new full-color illustrations.
    Focusing on common diseases, the book covers all specialty rotations, plus key areas such as embryology, anatomy, pediatrics, plastics, and lenses. This edition includes new cases and information on new drugs, especially glaucoma drugs.

    1 - Fundamentals ( 50 questions )
    2 - Embryology and Anatomy (50 questions )
    3 - Optics ( 50 questions )
    4 - Neuro-ophthalmology ( 100 questions )
    5 - Pediatrics and Strabismus ( 100 questions )
    6 - Plastics ( 100 questions )
    7 - Pathology ( 50 questions )
    8 - Uveitis ( 100 questions )
    9 - Glaucoma ( 100 questions )
    10 - Cornea ( 150 questions )
    11 - Lens/Cataract ( 50 questions )
    12 - Retina and Vitreous ( 150 questions )

    I have solved all the questions from this book and I found it especially useful to understand the guidelines and indications for various opthalmological procedures when presented through the medium of clinical vignettes. The questions testing semantic knowledge are also covered well in this book ( the ones that usually catch us unaware in the exam)

    Sample questions

    A 7-year-old white boy presents with a sudden onset of rapid evolution of unilateral ptosis for approximately 1 week. Examination shows significant edema in the periorbital area with a palpable mass in the superior nasal quadrant of the eyelid. Biopsy is performed immediately and the diagnosis of rhabdomyosarcoma is made. How is rhabdomyosarcoma best treated?
    A) Radiation with or without additional chemotherapy
    B) Total surgical excision
    C) Exenteration
    D) Chemotherapy alone
    A) Radiation with or without additional chemotherapy
    Before 1965, the standard treatment for orbital rhabdomyosarcoma involved exenteration, and it had a poor survival rate. Since 1965, this mutilating procedure has been abandoned as primary management. Radiation and systemic chemotherapy are the mainstays of treatment based on the guidelines set forth by the Intergroup Rhabdomyosarcoma Study. The total dose of local radiation varies from 4500 to 6000 rad given over a period of 6 weeks. Chemotherapy is used to eliminate microscopic cellular metastasis. The survival rate using these modalities has improved significantly.

    In orbital infectious disease:
    A) the presence of a subperiosteal collection of fluid is an indication for surgery
    B) the onset of decreased vision and an afferent pupillary defect in the presence of an orbital abscess is an indication for surgery
    C) proptosis and limitation of motility differentiate an orbital abscess from orbital cellulitis
    D) the maxillary sinus is the most common sinus involved when orbital cellulitis occurs as a result of sinusitis
    B) the onset of decreased vision and an afferent pupillary defect in the presence of an orbital abscess is an indication for surgery
    Orbital infectious disease occurs most commonly as a result of spread from surrounding sinusitis, most commonly the ethmoid sinuses. Whether the presence of a subperiosteal fluid collection on CT (in the presence of stable vision and clinical signs) is an absolute indication for surgery is controversial. Most ophthalmologists would agree that medical management and careful observation may be employed when the patient's clinical signs are stable and the vision is normal. Proptosis and motility limitation help to differentiate orbital cellulitis from preseptal cellulitis. Indications for surgical intervention in orbital cellulitis include decreasing vision and afferent pupillary defect, failure to respond to IV antibiotics, and progression of clinical signs such as motility changes and proptosis.
