This book, which deals with the physiology and pathology of the female reproductive organs of children, should be of interest to gynecologists, pediatricians, dermatologists and those interested in venereal diseases. It is generally assumed that the internal genitalia of female children lie dormant during childhood and hence cannot give rise to any disturbances. This is not true. Recent advances in endocrinology, for example, have demonstrated that activity does occur in these organs, particularly shortly after birth and at puberty. The author has devoted eight years of investigation to this study of the female reproductive organs in young girls and he has reviewed the literature on this subject.

In the first section the author first describes the anatomy of the genitalia
