Reviews

“Author Mohamed Fahmy aimed to assemble an exhaustive collection of congenital diseases of the penis. The basis of this textbook was the extensive experience of the author in the field of neonatology and congenital diseases of the genitalia. … This comprehensive and concise textbook is very useful for paediatricians, senior paediatric surgeons and trainees and will be the reference work for all practitioners managing cases of abnormal penis in children, infants or adolescents.” (European Urology Today, June-July, 2017)

“This is essentially an atlas of known anomalies of the penis. … The book is simple, direct, and well laid out. It will be understandable to all, from medical students to pediatric surgeons well versed in the subject. … this is an atlas or picture book of all things strange and unusual about the development of the penis. It is extensive and copiously illustrated with high-quality photographs.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2017)
