DESCRIPTION

Thoroughly updated and now featuring more than 100 full-color illustrations, the Fifth Edition of this comprehensive reference provides current, complete diagnostic and therapeutic information on infectious diseases of the female genital tract. This edition includes new chapters on human papillomavirus and the new vaccines and on infection as a cause of neonatal brain damage. The book emphasizes an evidence-based approach to recommendations and presents current guidelines for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. The presentation of material has been streamlined to produce a smaller, more user-friendly text, and the format has been modified to include additional algorithms and tables.

A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.
