Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Matthew R Golden, MD, MPH (University of Washington School of Medicine)
Description: This concise clinical guide to the management of sexually transmitted diseases (STD is organized into sections covering STD syndromes, specific infections, and special topics. The authors are respected experts in the field, and the chapters strike a good balance between clinical focus and public health.
Purpose: The book is designed primarily for clinicians and is meant to guide them in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with STDs. distinguished by its brevity and clinical focus, the book is largely successful in meeting its objectives.
Audience: It is written for students and clinicians, and is suitable primarily for generalists caring for persons with STDs or at risk for STD. However, the book will also be of use to infectious disease specialists and gynecologists.
Features: The book reviews how to approach patients with common STD syndromes as well as specific infections. A concise and authoritative reference is a useful addition to the literature available to busy clinicians. Overall, this is quite comprehensive for such a short book. However, it does not include instructions to help clinicians learn microscopy and I was not able to find any discussion about which patients should undergo lumbar puncture in the evaluation of syphilis.
Assessment: This is a very good, concise book on the diagnosis and management of STD, and should be useful to busy clinicians and students interested in this important topic.
