More than 30 different organisms cause infection and disease when transmitted by venereal contact. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) represent 87 percent of all reported infections.
This encyclopedia provides a wealth of information on STDs and associated topics, including care centers and departments, legal issues, and related associations and organizations. Coverage of the diseases includes such information as history, causes and origins; risk factors; diagnostic tests; considerations in pregnancy; and much more.
The work concludes with a wide selection of resources. Books, journals, support groups, hotlines, organizations, and Internet sites are listed, along with sources for information on topics such as low cost prescription drug programs, social security disability, health insurance, and clinical trials.

About the Author:

Author of Autoimmune Diseases and Their Environmental Triggers (2002), Elaine A. Moore works primarily in immunohematology and toxicology. She lives in Sedalia, Colorado. Lisa Marie Moore resides in Atlanta, Georgia where she works for the federal government. The Moores also coauthored Encyclopedia of Alzheimer's Disease (2003, A New York Public Library Outstanding Reference Book), and Graves' Disease: A Practical Guide (2001). The illustrator, Marvin G. Miller, is a clinical chemist. He lives in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

From Booklist:

All sorts of maladies may be found in this encyclopedia. Included are those diseases that are covered under the umbrella we've come to identify as STDs--sexually transmitted diseases--but the reader may find some other conditions that are not usually thought of as being in the same company. Examples of these are hepatitis A through E and scabies. Each disease entry includes helpful subsections for etiology, epidemiology, symptoms, complications, diagnosis, treatment, risk factors, and, where appropriate, issues regarding pregnancy. Infections transmitted through means other than sexual contact are also described. In this category, Body piercing, Needle sharing, and pregnancy each have their own entries.

The horror resulting from the gross misuse of sexual power may be found in the entries Child sexual abuse and Sexual assault. Oddly missing, however, is an entry for Rape, a term that might have helped steer readers to either of the above as a see also reference, if not a full definition.

Names associated with discovery, diagnosis, and healing are found in abundance. Although most are contemporary, the scope includes centuries past. Immunologist Paul Ehrlich, AIDS researcher Robert Gallo, and nineteenth-century French physician Phillipe Ricord are examples. Also defined are programs such as the Health Disparities Initiative, Healthy Life Choices Project, and Healthy People 2010.

In addition to an index, this work includes lists of books, journals, reports, Web sites; hotlines, and organizations. The Encyclopedia would be of value in both public and high-school libraries in which a quick reference on STDs is sought. Scottie Wallace
