The field of obstetric medicine is vast since virtually any medical condition may coincide with pregnancy, but certain diseases are encountered more frequently in women of child-bearing age and therefore more frequently complicate pregnancy. As the body of scientific knowledge grows and we understand more about conditions such as pre-eclampsia and intrahepatic cholestatis of pregnancy, the specialty of obstetric medicine continues to develop. This handbook provides a practical guide for obstetricians and physicians of all grades who care for pregnant women with medical problems. Highlighting the most important and relevant factors in the management of medical complications in pregnancy, the authors provide a synthesis of contemporary literature review and established practice. The chapters in the main section of the book are organized by system and cover the most common and important medical conditions encountered in pregnancy. This is followed by a section providing a practical approach to common symptoms in pregnancy with an emphasis on differential diagnosis.
