This reference is designed for clinicians who are increasingly responsible for primary care and need information on the diagnosis and management of non-gynaecologic disorders. Coverage begins with the key principles of primary care for women, including the well woman visit, disease prevention, and screening. The second section focuses on age-specific issues in care of female patients at each stage of life. The remainder of the text is organized by organ system and covers the entire spectrum of disorders seen by primary care physicians. Each disease-oriented chapter provides information on aetiology, differential diagnosis, history, physical examination, laboratory and imaging studies, treatment and/or referral, and special considerations during pregnancy.
