Description

The new Second Edition of Lower Genital Tract Precancer has been extensively revised and expanded to provide a definitive and contemporary reference on this subject. Providing a comprehensive examination of the applications and benefits of modern diagnostic and therapeutic practices in managing lesions of the female lower genital tract, the book is presented in a clear, easy--to--read style and is extensively illustrated. The text covers investigative procedures and techniques, reviews the normal and abnormal cervix and fully appraises the diagnosis and management of both benign and malignant lesions. Vaginal, vulvular and perianal premalignant diseases are discused, and a separate section is devoted to those conditions which mimic, and can thus be confused with, precancer. A new section on AIDS has been included and an entire chapter on pathology is also incorporated.

"Gynaecological Endoscopy"

"Lower Genital Tract Precancer: Colposcopy, Pathology and Treatment" is much more than simply a colposcopic atlas-it is a comprehensive and definitive statement of the wide range of skills needed to diagnose and manage any, and all, of the precancerous conditions and those which may mimic them.
