Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ocular inflammations involve different parts of the eyes, with difficult early first diagnosis and treatment not being defined in all cases. Etiologic investigations allow for the epidemiology of ocular inflammation, according to whether the infection is of immunological origin or indicative of neoplastic masquerade syndrome. Most cases need a multidisciplinary approach. It is important to hasten the diagnosis of ocular inflammation because its development into more severe forms is associated with a poor functional prognosis, bad visual outcomes, and severe complications despite treatment.

The aim of this Special Issue is to invite skilled colleagues to identify the clinical features of and treatments for patients with ocular inflammation.

We welcome cutting-edge papers that will provide us with useful recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of ocular inflammation.

We are soliciting original papers, brief reports, and reviews.
