Sexually Transmitted Diseases: A Guide for Primary Care, second edition, covers the diagnosis and treatment of STDs and other information critical to patient care and reflects the last five years of significant changes in information about STDs. Updated to reflect the 2010 Center for Disease Control Guidelines on the Treatment of STDs, this book also contains new information about:

-the epidemiology of herpes virus infections

-expedited partner therapy

-changes in recommendations for HPV vaccination for men

-changes in resistance patterns for antimicrobial therapy for gonorrhea and chlamydia

-treatment recommendations for bacterial vaginosis

-treatment recommendations for genital warts

In order to better meet clinician needs, the book has been streamlined to quickly convey critical, evidence-based information. Whether seeking information about particular conditions (including HPV, herpes, syphilis, trichomoniasis, HIV and AIDS, and others) or related patient issues (such as STD exposure evaluation and evaluation of sexual assault),Sexually Transmitted Diseases, second edition, contains the knowledge doctors need in a friendly, to-the-point format.
