This is a new book on the integrated management of vulvovaginal disease. The authors come from a variety of backgrounds - gynaecology, dermatology, pathology and psychology - and describe a multidisciplinary approach to these conditions. The book has the most complete classification of vulvovaginal disease published, based on the etiology of 275 conditions; coverage includes benign, malignant, and functional (including psychosexual) diseases. Each disease has a descriptive summary, pathological features, and treatment guidelines. The book is illustrated in full color throughout.


"I liked most that the manual is applicable to clinical practice and practical [...] The most stunning contribution in the manual is the collection of clinical photographs of both common and rare conditions. [...] Whether you are a general practitioner with little experience, or a specialist with experience in the area, you will find this book good value and useful." Gregory K. Davis, Medical Journal of Australia, Vol 3, no. 185, 7 August 2006 "Concise writing and good editing have meant that the 5 experienced specialist authors - covering gynaecology, dermatology, oncology, pathology and psychology - have complemented each other, avoiding duplication and/or conflicting information. This has resulted in a seamless text. [...] This manual is highly recommended, not to gather dust in a library but to be immediately available in every clinic." Ronald W. Jones, The Journal of Reproductive Medicine, Vol 51, No. 5 May 2006 "Overall, the authors are to be congratulated for bringing together a subject which crosses multiple specialities, and although this is called a manual, its comprehensive coverage of the area makes this an effective reference book." "There is an excellent table on the last two pages, listing a complete classification of vulvovaginal disease and several difficult areas (e.g management of vulval melanosis) have been dealt with well." Priya Selva-Nayagam (Australasian Journal of Dermatology, No. 47 Nov 2006) "Their breadth of training, experience, and perspective clearly manifests in the book, not only in the 130 excellent clinical photographs but also in the comprehensive catalogue of diagnoses, the discussion of psychosocial factors, the inclusion of common and rare malignant diseases, and the nearly 170 photomicrographs. [...] One method of gauging a new book's utility is to evaluate how beneficial it might have been in diagnosis or managment of my most recent patients, and against that litmus, this manual fared well. [...] Even and perhaps especially, the opening chapters filled with casually offered wisdom of the five specialists will make this book worth its purchase by those many of us who must approach diseases of this nether zone." Dianne Silvestri, Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, July 2006
