The 5th edition has been updated to address current challenges such as complications arising from medical and surgical abortion, medical and psychological problems arising from sexual assault and other gynecologic traumas, and emergent conditions due to chemical-biological warfare.

Perfect as a quick reference in the emergency room or your office, the newest edition of this handbook is diagnostic and treatment focused, touching on a range of everyday conditions and problems. These include newer issues such as medico-psychological ramifications of sexual assault, complications from abortion, assisted reproductive technologies, and immunologic therapies. Ob-gyns as well as non-obstetric providers will find much here to help them assess and manage clinical situations.
