Book Description

Currently in its fifth edition, the award winning Infectious Diseases in Obstetrics and Gynecology is the text against which all other books on this subject are measured. The book focuses on how infectious diseases impact women, both pregnant and non-pregnant, the unborn fetus, and the neonate. Section one covers basic concepts and antibiotic utilization in detail, section two focuses on specific pathogens, section three highlights the problem areas within obstetrics, and section four discusses specific gynecological problems. The only book that comprehensively covers infectious diseases in obstetrics and gynecology, it distills complex clinical problems in an easy to use format.
