Book Description

Despite the development of penicillin and other treatments, the incidence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) worldwide continues to rise. In Genital and Perianal Diseases, A Colour Handbook, the authors discuss the diagnosis and treatment of the main cutaneous conditions of the anogenital region, with a special focus on those diseases considered to be sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Through succinct text and more than 240 top-quality illustrations, this volume combines the advantages of an atlas and a concise textbook. This work is of value to a wide range of health professionals including dermatologists, infectious and venereal disease specialists, urologists, gynecologists, emergency physicians, nurse practitioners, general practitioners, and pediatricians.
