Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology for the MRCOG and Beyond
This book lays out the fundamentals of both the investigation and management of children with gynaecological conditions - an area of work which can be intimidating for many gynaecologists. The contents cover: pubertal growth and development; indeterminate genitalia; gynaecological problems in childhood; endocrine disorders; child sexual abuse; amenorrhoea; menstrual problems in teenagers; contraception; female genital mutilation; and gynaecological tumours. The book is primarily designed to provide a comprehensive summary for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination, and as such covers the RCOG curriculum for paediatric and adolescent gynaecology. It is also a valuable guide for all healthcare professionals working in the field, at any level of practice.
