Abstract

This review is of the slide collection that accompanies the Atlas of Sexually Transmitted Diseases. I reviewed the section on genital herpes that consisted of 40 slides and a brief, 19-page accompanying text. The topics of the slides and text include epidemiology; clinical manifestations of genital and neonatal infections and eczema herpeticum; laboratory tests, including Tzanck smears, histopathology, electron microscopy, immunofluorescence, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, and Southern blots; and a brief section on treatment.

The quality of the clinical and histopathologic slides is exceptional. The accompanying figures, diagrams, and graphs are well done and eye-catching. This slide collection would more than adequately accompany and enhance any lecture given on genital herpes. If the slide collection on genital herpes is representative of the full set of Gower Medical Publishing's Slide Atlas of Sexually Transmitted Diseases, the slide collection would be a worthwhile purchase for a large department of dermatology, despite the expense
