General science

European Practice in Gynaecology and Obstetrics is a series of books published under the auspices of EBCOG. In each volume, the specialist will find a review of basic science, recent concepts in pathophysiology, clinical aspects, imaging, treatment and unresolved problems or controversies, and up-to-date references. Examining and treating children and adolescents can be a frightening and unsatisfactory experience for the gynaecologist lacking experience. The pathology is completely different from that affecting older women, and both the diagnostic approach and the therapeutic measures to be applied have little in common with those to which physicians resort in their practice of adult gynaecology. This concise monograph intends to provide the reader with a wealth of information in a highly structured, readable and accessible way. The book further illustrates the extraordinarily multidisciplinary character of paediatric and adolescent gynaecology, which unquestionably is one of its most rewarding features. This process of intellectual pollination benefits all concerned.
