This third edition of Principles and Practice of Medical Therapy in Pregnancy has been rewritten and many new chapters added. It is a voluminous and encyclopedic textbook and modern reference work. In its emphasis on medical management of medical and surgical conditions during pregnancy, it is written for all health professionals (obstetrician-gynecologists, internists, and family physicians) who care for pregnant women.

Edited by Dr Norbert Gleicher, with the able assistance of six coeditors, the volume is gargantuan: 1600 pages (up from 1280 pages in the first edition in 1985) in 21 sections encompassing 231 chapters by 262 contributors (of whom 136 are obstetric specialists and 121 specialists in the wide variety of medical entities presented), and a 23-page index.
