From one of the nation’s leading authorities on infectious disease, this practical resource is designed for clinicians involved in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of sexually transmitted and reproductive tract infections. Sexually Transmitted Infections: Diagnosis, Management, and Treatment begins with chapters on taking a sexual history and the examination of the male and female patient, followed by over 40 chapters that cover the complete range of sexually transmitted infections (e.g., gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, HPV, scabies, genital ulcer disease); as well as patient counseling; care following rape; and sexually transmitted infections in homosexual men and women, in commercial sex workers, during pregnancy, and in the military. With contributions from an international author team from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and several other countries, the book also offers clinical and public health case studies as well as ample figures, illustrations, and photographs. Key references are provided at the end of each chapter.
