This pioneer book deals with pediatric gynecology. The author has had extensive experience, so the book is based not only on the literature but also on large personal knowledge. The material encompasses not only disturbances of the external and internal female genitalia but also surgical considerations including urologic and proctologic conditions. There is an excellent chapter on menstruation and its disorders in young girls. At the end are chapters on social service and medicolegal aspects of pediatric gynecology. The book is beautifully written and amply and clearly illustrated. The publishers have done their part extremely well. This book definitely belongs in the hands of every gynecologist, pediatrician, urologist, proctologist and general practitioner who deals with young girls.
