Posterior Uveitis - Choroiditis (CPR)


LVPEI

About This Course

Choroiditis is characterized by a wide variety of manifestations that can range from unifocal to multifocal to diffuse lesions. These lesions are often confused with non-choroiditis lesions – both inflammatory and non-inflammatory. In this course, we will cover choroiditis with a more holistic approach than generally found in meetings and textbooks.
