The rapid changes in the STD arena are defined here by the leading figures in the field. Foremost among the new material is the superlative coverage of HIV and AIDS. You'll find diagnosis and management guidelines, HIV in reproductive health and pediatrics, establishing prevention programs. HIV in developing countries and more. All other STDs are reviewed in depth, and the winning organization reviews diseases by underlying pathogen (bacteria, fungi, protozoa, etc). Also, fully updated coverage of medical, legal and social issues is supplied to give the specialist or primary care physician broad based coverage beyond diagnosis and management concerns.

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