This is a book which covers all aspects of diagnosis and management in Gynecology and Obstetrics using state of the art information and presentation. It covers these aspects not with the conventional technique of merely providing all possible information but by describing a systematic clinicians analytical approach to each problem. The subject is divided into eighteen sections which include 129 chapters. Each diagnostic problem is handled in the form of a flow chart as is often used mentally by a successful gynecologist and obstetrician after years of clinical experience. Each diagnostic step is discussed appropriately on a page adjacent to the respective flow chart so the reader does not have to flip through pages for relevant information. Various options in management are outlined based on the clinical situation and presence of complications.
This book is meant for resident doctors in training, practicing gynecologists and obstetricians and other specialists who treat obstetric and gynecological patients too, such as endocrinologists and oncologists. The three special chapters on Therapeutics Genetic Counselling and Laboratory Values should prove useful for ready reference. There are no sharp lines in demarcating the syllabus of undergraduate and postgraduate students. Hence this book should prove useful to undergraduate students too, especially those who aspire for more knowledge or wish to excel.
