Review:

This is a beautifully presented book ... the complete range of sexually transmissible diseases and the complications of HIV infection and AIDS are covered in a comprehensive and visually outstanding book. I think the book is superb, and should be available to all trainees in genitourinary medicine, infectious disease and dermatology. -- Rob Miller, Middlesex Hospital, UK Br J Hosp Med 19960101 ... An outstanding atlas edited by a trio of authors who are esteemed authorities in STD ...the illustrations are perhaps the most striking I have ever encountered depicting the lesions of STD s... an outstanding addition to infectious disease in general and STD in particular. -- John A Robinson, MD, Loyola University School of Medicine, USA Doody s Medical Reviews 19960101
