  • Compiles a host of expert reviews from all specialty areas involving male and female pelvic regional pain syndromes
  • Covers dermatologic and rheumatologic disorders
  • Demonstrates the interrelationship of urologic colorectal and gynecologic pathophysiology
  • Addresses iatrogenic causes of GU inflammation, such as those caused by catheters, prosthetics, radiation or chemotherapy

The subspecialty of genitourinary or pelvic pain suffers from the lack of objective data and level-1 evidence. Genitourinary Pain and Inflammation: Diagnosis and Management of GU-ITIS is a compilation of skilled creativity based upon critical review of the literature, consensus reports, and professional experiences. It includes detailed chapters that address iatrogenic causes of GU inflammation, caused by catheters, prosthetics, radiation, or chemotherapy. Chapters in Genitourinary Pain and Inflammation: Diagnosis and Management of GU-ITIS also discuss pain syndromes specific to the pelvic floor and the genitourinary system from several perspectives. Experts in the urological and gastrointestinal fields provide the specifics for gaining the basic understanding of inflammation and pains caused by infectious etiologies.
