Infectious Retina 101

Recorded On: 11/08/2018

Infectious retinal diseases are devastating, as they can to lead permanent visual field and acuity loss. They can be due to a variety of causes including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and can be found not only in immune competent patients, but also, at times more frequently, in immune-comprised patients such as those with advanced acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Many of these conditions are potentially blinding, therefore early diagnosis, testing, and treatment are vital. This lecture will focus on select conditions that can manifest in the retina with a discussion on pathogenesis, signs/symptoms, testing, and treatment.
