A pterygium is a growth that develops on the conjunctiva or mucous membrane that covers the white part of the eye. It is a benign or noncancerous growth that is often shaped like a wedge. In some cases, a pterygium can extend to the cornea. A pterygium usually doesn't cause problems or require treatment, but it can be removed if it interferes with vision. The exact cause of pterygium isn't known but one explanation is that too much exposure to ultraviolet light can lead to these growths (Healthline.com). This book is a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis and management of pterygium. Divided into four main sections, the book begins with an introduction to pterygium, and its etiopathogenesis, possible causes and diagnosis. The following sections explain numerous surgical techniques for its management, covering both traditional and newer procedures; and treatment of recurrent pterygium. The final section describes challenging situations in the management of pterygium including post surgical complications, and its treatment with co-existing disorders such as cataract, glaucoma, and corneal opacity. The text is highly illustrated with clinical photographs and is accompanied by an interactive DVD ROM.
