Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jennifer Parkerson, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: From the official publication of the American Academy of Pediatrics section of Adolescent Health, this collection of review articles, written by experts in the field, covers a broad range of topics in adolescent gynecology.
Purpose: The purpose is to call on the expertise of editors and authors, many who are members of the North American Society of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology, to cover a full range of topics in adolescent gynecology, providing current information on the medical and psychological aspects of caring for adolescent patients. Some articles also touch on the surgical aspects of care of these patients.
Audience: Residents and practitioners in pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology are the intended audience, but the book is also a valuable resource for those in emergency medicine and family practice. The authors and editors are leaders in the fields of adolescent medicine and adolescent gynecology.
Features: Topics range from normal pubertal development to excessive uterine bleeding and polycystic ovarian syndrome, to name a few. Each chapter or review article addresses a specific clinical topic in adolescent gynecology, guiding readers to a knowledgeable approach to the evaluation, care, and treatment of adolescents. The review article on contraception for the primary care provider is particularly well organized and informative.
Assessment: The review article style of this book provides an accessible resource for information important for the care of the adolescent female population. Although it is not as extensive as textbooks on the subject, it is certainly a valuable addition to a primary care physician's library.
