Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: J. Matthew Hassan(Vanderbilt University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a set of concise medical guides intended as a review of the current diagnosis and management of diseases affecting the testes.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a useful reference text for family physicians. gynecologists, urologists, and nurses. This is a laudable goal because the embarrassing or frightening symptoms of testicular diseases often can cause patients to ignore problems. It is, therefore, essential that all practitioners identify and look for evidence of testicular pathology.
Audience: While the intent is to assist a broad variety of medical practitioners, the level of the material is too simple for most physicians with training in urology. In addition, the content is too vague to be of practical value for any practicing physician. Anyone with enough curiosity to read this book will most likely require an additional source to access the information he or she requires.
Features: The information covered is vast: embryology, anatomy, congenital diseases, infectious diseases, benign and malignant diseases, scrotal diseases, and male infertility. What is particularly well-covered is the diagnosis of patients with certain disorders. In addition, as with all of the Fast Facts series, this text has excellent photographs of gross specimens. One of the shortcomings is the Future Trends section — the authors have good intentions, but this section is incomplete. In a true reference book, such material would best be divided up and covered in each section systematically, rather than in one all-inclusive epilogue.
Assessment: This is a good review of diagnosis and management of diseases of the testes. The problem, however, is the authors' goal is too ambitious. It would be impossible to adequately cover all diseases of the testis, scrotum, and infertility in one fifty-five page handbook. Many topics are vaguely covered and not complete enough to be independently useful. Other books in the Fast Facts series are more successful because they are more focused.
