Endometriosis affects women in the reproductive years, is associated with pelvic pain and infertility, and - although not life threatening - can seriously impair health, with huge economic and social consequences. It is arguably the most frequent problem encountered in contemporary More…gynecology and is the subject of much ongoing research and innovation in management. This beautifully and comprehensively illustrated Atlas, now in its third edition, provides a useful educational tool for trainees and general obstetricians and gynecologists who may not be up-to-date with the most important recent research on the diagnosis and management of the condition; particularly expanded for this edition are the chapters on ultrasound imaging and the nutritional aspects of the subject.
