One Response to “CURRENT Diagnosis & Treatment of Sexually Transmitted Diseases”
  1. I recently bought Fast Facts-Sexually Transmitted Diseases-inadequate ,not even suitable for an undergrad,but the book under review is a horse by another colour,its all here for the non-specialist, particularly helpful is its advice and algorithms for patients whose symptoms persist in spite of repeated clear tests,the only minor complaint was that it did not address the poorly named male pelvic congestion syndrome in its discussion of ongoing symptomatology where a clear cut cause is being elusive, however maybe that is one for the urologists rather than venereologists. An invaluable primary care reference.
