This is followed by clinical presentation and the reader is led through the logical work-up of a case to reach a diagnosis. An algorithm accompanies most cases to provide a rapid pictorial overview of the clinical steps involved. Essential references are provided. Each of the major areas of female reproductive health is covered, as well as gynaecological emergencies and treatment of cancer.This book provides an up to date reference for the busy practitioner. It will be an essential companion for the gynaecologist and for the interested GP. It relates current research developments in gynaecology and reproductive health to current clinical practice. It deals with both clinical treatment and social care of female patient. It provides problem-based learning approach of great value for trainees and CPD.

"This is an excellent addition to practical gynaecology literature. It is a 'must-have' book for all trainees but would also be of help to all clinicians involved in the management of gynaecological conditions, including general practitioners with an interest in gynaecology... Management of each condition is evidence-based and heavily referenced with Cochrane reviews, giving the reader the opportunity to gain an up-to-date view... This will provide invaluable help to any clinician in answering women's questions related to treatment options for infertility and possible problems they may encounter... The reader will find extensive and well-referenced advice on alternative and complementary therapies for menorrhagia and the menopause, which are currently very much sought after by women... Very few textbooks contain a chapter on urogenital ageing, which is a huge problem in any gynaecological practice in real life... I can heartily recommend this book to all students and clinicians practising in our speciality".
