Overview

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a sexually transmitted disease caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia. It most often occurs in young women and may go undetected for years. Untreated PID leads to many potentially severe and devastating health Consequences, including infertility. This book discusses the presence and control of PID in the United States. It highlights the symptoms and consequences of PID and how it can be recognized and diagnosed. Effective medications exist for this disease, but early detection is essential to successful treatment.

Infectious diseases affect everyone. Although not all are fatal, each disease causes a degree of harm and discomfort to those that they afflict and can sometimes have long-lasting consequences. Each book in the series Deadly Diseases and Epidemics takes the reader through all aspects of an infectious disease-from its history and method of infection to its treatment and prevention. The books provide a foundation for understanding the basics of microbiology, immunology, and epidemiology.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathi I. White
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) is a disease that is sexually transmitted. PID is usually caused by gonorrhea or Chlamydia, which are results from unprotected sex. Doctors may examine and check for these two diseases and find that the patient has PID. However, this disease is often hard to diagnose because it usually has no symptoms of the infection. Some women may experience mild abdominal pain, which may be misdiagnosed. Women who have severe cases that may have been previously undetected could have a high fever, vomiting, severe abdominal pain and even an ovarian abscess. Most of the time PID is treated with antibiotics; however, if there is a ruptured abscess surgery may be necessary. Since PID is contagious, the person who is infected must tell their sexual partner so that they may get treatment. Even though PID is treatable, lifetime complications could occur. Rupture of abscesses, peritonitis, ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus wall), chronic pelvic pain, and infertility are problems that can happen. A newborn baby can get Chlamydia from his infected mother. The child may have conjunctivitis or pneumonia or both when born as a result of this disease. This educational book explains in careful details about PID, the causes, the treatment, the problems of the disease, and the prevention. This book would be an excellent resource for teens, especially those who are sexually active. This book is part of the "Deadly Diseases and Epidemics" series. Reviewer: Cathi I. White
