The medical, surgical, and psychological problems associated with the female reproductive system in infancy and adolescence demand the highest standards of clinical intervention. This textbook provides a comprehensive review of all the common and less often encountered pediatric and adolescent gynecology problems in daily practice, both in the ambulatory as well as in the surgical setting. An integral CD-ROM supplies video clips of relevant surgical procedures, as well as charts, tables, and forms that users can download and adapt for local use.
