Pediatric Posterior Segment Anomalies with Dr. Hannah Holtorf

Course Description

It is rare that the posterior segment is anything but unremarkable for the pediatric population; however, it is essential for the pediatric optometry community to be aware of appropriate treatment and management for posterior segment anomalies that may correlate with systemic conditions and impact future visual outcomes. This lecture will review a variety of pediatric case reports from Arkansas Children’s Hospital that involve the treatment and management of unusual posterior segment presentations and some associated systemic conditions.
