This synopsis is offered primarily for the use of medical students who intend to enter some field of medicine unrelated to gynecology. The content is taken from the textbook "Diseases of Women," by the same authors. The subject matter of approximately 1,200 pages has been condensed into 225 pages. The actual word content is something more than this ratio, as a much smaller type has been employed. The condensation has been well done but obviously at the sacrifice of much that is pertinent and valuable to the student who is acquiring a perspective in medicine. There is a place for quiz compends, but for the medical student who should obtain an insight into the part that gynecology occupies in the field of medicine this synopsis is quite inadequate. The reasoning, the deductions, the debatable issues necessarily omitted in this synopsis are included in all the standard textbooks on this subject
