The fact that this third edition has been published within six years of the first attests to the author's ability to provide a text that keeps abreast of current diagnostic and therapeutic methods in urology. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 deals with the embryology, anatomy, and physiology of the genitourinary organs; part 2 with examination of the urologic patient; and part 3 with diseases of the genitourinary organs. The first part is concise and factual. The development, adult relationships, and functions of the various organs are correlated so as to give a clear and accurate picture of the genitourinary system in health and disease. Drawings and photographs help to illustrate the subject matter. Where applicable, paragraphs called "practical considerations" point out salient facts that are clinically important. Part 2 is brief and touches on significant points in a patient's history and physical examination. Reference is made
