Recorded On: 10/11/2017
Infectious retinal diseases are devastating, and can to lead permanent visual field and acuity loss. They can be due to various causes including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and can be in immune competent patients, but also, and at times more frequently, in immune-comprised patients such as those with advanced acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Since many of these conditions are potentially blinding, early diagnosis, testing, and treatment are vital. This lecture will focus on select conditions in the retina with a discussion on pathogenesis, signs and symptoms, testing, and treatment. Case examples will also be introduced.
