About this book

Amenorrhea: A Case-Based Clinical Guide is a comprehensive review of the current knowledge regarding normal female reproductive physiology. Replete with interesting case vignettes and providing diagnostic algorithms and therapeutic strategies for amenorrhea, Amenorrhea: A Case-Based Clinical Guide is divided into three sections. The first section is composed of two chapters that provide a thorough review of basic science and clinical knowledge about the organ systems responsible for normal physiology of the menstrual cycle. The second section includes discussion about menstrual cycle disruption as it relates to hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction, surgical and natural menopause, genetic defects, premature ovarian failure/insufficiency and the effects of caloric excess and restriction. The third section offers an update on the physiological effects of prolonged amenorrhea induced surgically or by hypothalamic dysfunction and also includes an original chapter that focuses solely on the impact of race and ethnicity on the prevalence and diagnosis of amenorrhea. Amenorrhea: A Case-Based Clinical Guide brings together chapters from renowned experts who offer state-of-the-art, clinically useful information in a case-based, reader-friendly fashion. This title will be a welcome addition to the bookshelves of all clinicians who practice in women’s health settings.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book … is the only book available that covers all aspects of amenorrhoea exclusively. … this book provides a comprehensive review of a common but often puzzling gynaecological symptom. … this book is a welcome addition. It focuses on a small but important part of gynaecology and it will serve the needs of practising gynaecologists, trainees and other clinicians well.” (Madhavi Vellayan, The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, Vol. 13 (4), October, 2011)

“In Amenorrhea, A Case-Based, Clinical Guide, the editors state that they set out to organize a comprehensive review of amenorrhea that would update clinicians ‘on our current knowledge regarding normal female reproductive physiology and … discuss the pathophysiology, diagnostic algorithms, and therapeutic intervention for amenorrhea.’ The book begins well, with two chapters on what is normal, followed by chapters addressing the various causes of amenorrhea. … The last several chapters were especially informative.” (R. Wayne Inzer, Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings, July, 2011)

“This concise but comprehensive review of reproductive pathophysiology and amenorrhea presents relevant and thought-provoking clinical vignettes. … this book is aimed at practicing clinicians, both residents and students would benefit from reading it as well. The editors and many of the authors are specialists who are knowledgeable and well known in the field of reproductive medicine. … This is an extremely valuable book for a wide variety of clinicians who treat female patients.” (Kerri Lynn Luzzo, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2011)
