Written by leading authorities, the second edition of this popular reference describes the applications and benefits of colposcopy in modern gynecological practice, emphasizing practical management. A new chapter dealing with the aetiological factors of lower genital tract precancer and the role of human papilloma virus brings the reader up to date with the pivotal role of HPV in diseases of the lower genital tract. This augments the early chapters dealing with methods of investigation and colposcopic examination. New sections detailing cytology, the management of minor abnormality smears, HIV and early invasive cancer are included; as well as a new section devoted to the role of minimal access surgery. These enhancements in content coupled with numerous new line drawings and over 350 full-color illustrations, reinforce this authoritative account of the normal and abnormal cervic and benign and malignant lesions.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.
