Coverage of each condition includes one more clinical case studies.

Color Atlas & Synopsis of Sexually Transmitted Diseases, 3e includes about twenty percent new photographs, and the text has been entirely rewritten to include the latest information on epidemiology and treatment.

You will also find an important overview section on the clinical approach to patients with STDs. While written primarily for the clinician, it is an excellent resource for patient education and for nonprofessionals interested in STDs.
