Just as every individual is unique, every patient too presents with his or her distinct story. The same disease may affect two individuals in different ways. For example, one patient may present with chronic pelvic pain while the other one with infertility. However, both of them may be suffering from a similar disease, i.e. endometriosis in this case. Thus, every patient presents as a unique jigsaw puzzle. The book “Obstetrics and Gynecology: Clinical Correlations with Diagnostic Implications” is the author’s deeply contemplated effort in the direction of solving that jigsaw puzzle. The book presents a compilation of 42 clinical cases in the speciality of obstetrics and gynecology. Of these, 23 clinical cases are pertaining to obstetrics and 19 clinical cases are pertaining to gynecology. Each clinical case scenario is followed by multiple-choice questions, which will not only help in solving the jigsaw related to clinical case presentation, its diagnosis and management but would also enable the readers in using their own judgements before solving each case.
In clinical practice, “It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has.” Each case presented in this book is distinctive, with each patient having an exclusive set of signs and symptoms. Through these cases, the reader would also be able to grasp the basics of obstetrics and gynecology. The book would be useful to the practitioners as well as the postgraduate students, residents and fellows in obstetrics and gynecology. Even the general practitioners who have not received formal training in obstetrics and gynecology may find this book useful.
