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.


"It is long overdue to have a book of this quality and magnitude available for medical care providers and trainees….I firmly believe that this book will very quickly become the favorite of students, residents, and primary care providers everywhere for its ease of use and brief but useful content."

-Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology
