Description from Amazon.com
This landmark two-volume work provides an unprecedented survey of the entire field of reproductive medicine. The volumes are beautifully designed, with richly detailed full-color illustrations throughout, and organized for ease of use and practical reference. The text is divided into three sections. The first provides a comprehensive review of the ontogeny and function of the reproductive axis and its normal embryology and physiology. The second section is a state-of-the-art review of the diagnosis and management of disorders of the reproductive axis, including disorders of sexual differentiation, disorders of puberty, disorders of the hypothalamic pulse generator, disorders of the pituitary gonadotroph, disorders of the ovarian follicle, end organ pathology, and hyperprolactinemic disorders. This section also includes detailed discussions of hormonal contraception, endocrine disorders during pregnancy, and the climacteric. The final section reviews all known factors responsible for infertility and describes current approaches to its diagnosis and management.
