Details

As the knowledge required for efficient delivery of quality women’s healthcare continues to grow, disease-specific textbooks are required to specifically address all aspects of a condition. A general textbook may not be able to address this need due to space constraints. This book is written to fill this gap as it relates to amenorrhoea, a common challenge for women within the reproductive age. The reader is offered a comprehensive knowledge of amenorrhoea, its burden, causes, presentation and management in one book. The book covers all aspect of amenorrhoea, which ordinarily is not covered by general textbooks of gynaecology. This compilation addresses various causes of amenorrhoea, from common causes such as hyperprolactinaemia to rare causes like Kallmann’s syndrome and female athlete triad.

The chapters are arranged in a logical and easy-to-follow style from general to specific issues making the book a daily guide as well as a reference text on amenorrhoea. The book’s multi-author design is deliberate to ensure not only depth and breadth, but diversity as well. It also ensures that the experience and expertise of over twenty authors is brought to bear concerning the content. In addition, the authors utilise the available evidence moderated by their experience to produce a simple and straightforward guide for the practising gynaecologist, resident, general medical practitioner and others interested in providing quality reproductive health care to women in low, middle and high-income countries. Experienced gynaecologists and trainers will also find this book a very useful companion and guide. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
