Overview

The first comprehensive text to address adolescent medicine as a separate field of study, COMPREHENSIVE ADOLESCENT HEALTH CARE, 2nd Edition remains a one-stop resource for primary care providers and adolescent medicine subspecialists, covering all aspects of the field in a highly practical format. Completely revised, it includes up-to-date information on drug abuse, adolescent sexuality, HIV infections, violence, ADD and learning disorders, adolescent pregnancy, financial considerations relevant to adolescent health care, and much more. In addition to its day-to-day usefulness in practice, it is an excellent study reference for the pediatric or internal medicine Boards, both of which now require knowledge of adolescent medicine.

* Includes medical, psychosocial, and surgical problems specific to adolescents, as well as chapters on normal adolescent development.
• Presents unfamiliar concepts in an easy-to-read, jargon-free manner, making it accessible and appealing to a wide range of practitioners.
• Features superb color plates on cervical findings and the Pap smear, dermatologic disorders, and more.
• Includes particularly detailed illustrations of typical progression of female and male pubertal development, and clearly depicts steps in the female pelvic examination.
• Provides a wide perspective on adolescent medicine from over 180 experts, under the editorial guidance of four renowned practitioners in the field.

The book contains both black-and-white and color illustrations.

While Comprehensive Adolescent Health Care is an essential reference for the specialist in adolescent health, it will be equally useful for any clinician who provides regular care to adolescents or wishes to become better at doing so.
