Inflammations represent the most frequent diseases of the orbit. Because the symptoms of various inflammatory conditions are very similar, radiological examination is crucial in reaching the correct diagnosis. The book is structured in a practical fashion, in that the clinical features and diagnostic imaging of each individual case are presented together. This richly illustrated volume will therefore be an invaluable daily reference for clinicians and practitioners in ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology and radiology
