Written by Giovanni Maciocia, probably the most respected Western TCM practitioner and author of TCM texts, this is the most comprehensive test of its kind in the English language. It covers the principles of diseases related to obstetrics and gynecology in TCM and offers a full, clear and detailed exploration of this area. The text adapts Traditional Chinese gynecology to Western conditions and patients, reflected in over 100 case histories.

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