About this book

This short, pithy book – addressed to primary care physicians, will also be invaluable to those studying urology, prior to taking any professional exam. Urological problems are so common as to represent a significant burden for many care physicians and GPs in their everyday practice worldwide. A major concern is how far to go themselves in the diagnosis and treatment of a urological diseases and when to refer the patient for specialist care. Problem Based Urology will provide an easy and user friendly tool to help in decision making on the main urological problems and the most appropriate timing for referral to specialist care. Within each chapter, one or more flow charts will help the reader, step-by-step, to formulate the most likely diagnosis on the basis of findings from medical history, examination and investigations and to start an appropriate first line treatment or to refer the patient to the specialist where appropriate. Each step of the flow chart will be explained in legends consecutively numbered at the bottom of the flow chart diagram. Besides, each chapter will be enriched with tables reporting the most common diseases to be accounted in the differential diagnosis, treatment choices manageable by the primary care physician or GP.

It is very well-written-with clear information in a logical, easily followed sequence. … This is a compact, yet exhaustive book. It is very well-laid-out and written – an ideal starter or reference text for primary care/general physicians and urology trainees.’” (BMA Medical Book Awards, September, 2014)

“Editors Gontero, Kirby and Carson and 35 contributors aimed to address clinical problems in an original way, examined symptoms reported by patients, the clinical or investigational findings and laboratory abnormalities. … this textbook collected practical information and presented many decisional trees and tables which summarise the essential knowledge in various fields of urology. It will be an excellent and very useful purchase for GP and urologists.” (European Urology Today, February-March, 2014)
