Ebola and the Eye: A Story of Discovery and Uncertainty 

06-10-2015 06:50

Ian Crozier, an infectious disease specialist, was living in Uganda, teaching physicians and providing care for patients with HIV/AIDS, when the Ebola outbreak began in West Africa. He signed on with the World Health Organization and arrived in Kenema, Sierra Leone to help in the fight against the outbreak in August 2014. Within a few weeks, he himself contracted the disease and was evacuated to Emory University Hospital in critical condition. Crozier and a team of ophthalmology and infectious disease physicians from Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention share their perspectives into Crozier’s evacuation, treatment, recovery and subsequent vision-threatening condition, as each of them dealt with the uncertainty and long-term implications of this virus.
