Aurel-von-Szily Lecture – Multimodal Diagnostic of Uveitis
Uveitis, the inflammation of the uvea, represents a group of different diseases that can affect a patient’s eyesight seriously. Modern multimodal diagnostic provides new insights in the pathogenesis of uveitis and contributes to a better understanding of the progression of the disease and better assessment of therapies. Carlos Pavesio (London) will present an in-depth view of multimodal uveitis diagnostics in this year’s von Szily Lecture.
After his graduation in Brazil Pavesio started working in London, where he specialized in the field of inflammatory eye diseases. Today he is director of the Medical Retina Service at the Moorfields Eye Hospital in London.
The award lecture will be presented as part of the symposium “Viral-induced anterior uveitis” organized by the DOG’s uveitis section. Specialized diagnostic methods, including OCT scans and wide-angle angiography, will be discussed in other congress lectures.
The Aurel von Szily Medal is awarded in memory of the renowned ophthalmologist and researcher Aurel von Szily (1886 – 1945). Removed from his posts as professor at the University of Münster and as editor of the “Klinische Monatsblätter für Augenheilkunde” (“Clinical Monthly for Ophthalmology”) by the German National Socialist government in 1935 and 1937, respectively, Aurel von Szily returned to his hometown Budapest in 1939. Among his most important works is his “Comparative Morphogenesis and Morphography of Papilla Nervi Optici” (“Vergleichende Morphogenese und Morphographie der Papilla nervi optici”), which unfortunately remained unfinished.
