This is the first illustrated dictionary of obstetrics and gynecology. It contains over 15,000 definitions, including pertinent terms from other disciplines, extensively cross-referenced. 280 outstanding single-concept illustrations elucidate and support selected definitions, which are all written in everyday language, worded simply and concisely, with some expanded for better comprehension. The dictionary's masterfully drawn illustrations focus on a single concept to help the reader concentrate on the meaning of a single word. Many depict precisely and accurately the female reproductive system, incorporating fourteen plates of color illustrations. Other important features include color correlation of a defined term and its illustration, helpful cross-referencing, a pronunciation guide with diacritical marks and 16 pages of relevant abbreviations. This dictionary is published especially for primary care and general physicians and specialists and their staff from other disciplines working with patient referrals from obstetricians and gynecologists. It is also a boon to students and residents as well as to nurses and staff in obstetrics and gynecology departments and offices.
