The second edition of this textbook provides a comprehensive study of pediatric and adolescent gynecology. It is divided into 3 sections: "Growth and Development," "Medical Problems," and "Surgical Problems." This format is the same as the first edition.
Four editors and 51 authors contributed to the text. The use of multiple authors provides a wide range of expertise by recognized authorities in their specialties. The associate editors also coauthor several chapters, which gives continuity to the sections. The quality and usefulness of the figures and tables are excellent, and the quality of the photographs varies from adequate to excellent. The use of recent references indicates that current information was incorporated in most chapter revisions.
