Part I: Ophthalmic Pathology
Chapter 11: Retina and Retinal Pigment Epithelium
Noninfectious inflammation of the retina may be acute with an infiltrate of neutrophils, chronic with an infiltrate of lymphocytes and plasma cells, or granulomatous with the presence of epithelioid histiocytes and/or multinucleated giant cells in the inflammatory infiltrate. Noninfectious inflammatory conditions, including autoimmune conditions involving the retina, are discussed in more detail in BCSC Section 9, Uveitis and Ocular Inflammation, and Section 12, Retina and Vitreous.
