This innovative resource is a "bridge" between an introductory survey text and a very large, comprehensive reference designed for the specialist, while retaining the best qualities of each. Its comprehensive, concisely presented coverage encompasses all aspects of the diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients with sexually transmitted infections and HIV. Evidence-based treatment options are presented whenever possible, and references direct readers to more in-depth sources. Full-color illustrations and photographs, bulleted lists, and tables make information easy to access and bring the text to life.
