Overview

A protocol book, not a reference text, Clinical Protocols in Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology gives you easy access to essential information without having to wade through unnecessary facts to find what you need. The authors combine a complete review of the literature with their clinical experience and place it in a bulleted text format with photographs, figures, and algorithms, making information not only authoritative but easy to find and use.

The book contains diagnostic and treatment methodology for the most simple pediaric adolescent gynecology problems such as vulvovaginitis and labial adhesions; for common issues like menstrual disorders and contraception; and more complex disorders such as Turner syndrome and ambiguous genitalia and everything in between. Not just a review, it provides a basic handbook on how to assess problems quickly and efficiently, enabling the clinician to quickly develop and execute a management plan.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Roxanne Thompson, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book provides a broad overview and quick reference for gynecologic problems in children and adolescents.
Purpose: Written for practitioners who encounter children and adolescents with gynecological problems, the book aims to provide a brief overview of the topics, as well as a stepwise approach to their management. Since many practitioners have little practical experience with gynecological problems in children and adolescents, these are very worthy objectives.
Audience: This book is directed toward students, residents, and practitioners who care for children, including general pediatricians, family medicine physicians, and gynecologists. It is appropriate for the general practitioner with limited experience in this field. Two of the authors have completed fellowship programs in pediatrics and adolescent gynecology.
Features: A broad range of gynecologic problems that might confront the pediatrician or family medicine practitioner are covered, including anatomical abnormalities, menstrual disorders, breast disorders, eating disorders, and sexually transmitted diseases. Topics are presented in outline form, with bulleted lists of pertinent facts. Where appropriate, photographs or drawings are provided. Management is presented in a similar manner. There is very little detail, but this suits the purpose of the book. It is very much like a handbook or quick reference.
Assessment: This book would be useful to any practitioner who works with children but has limited knowledge of gynecological issues in children. The content is very practical and easily accessible. The amount of detail is limited, so it may not be appropriate for more experienced practitioners.
