Highly Commended, Dermatology, BMA Awards 2009 Completely updated throughout--and still the only reference of its kind--the new edition of this well-respected resource offers you a practical guide for the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of a full range of common and uncommon obstetric and gynecologic skin disorders. Expanded coverage--including chapters on vulval vaginal disease help you meet more clinical challenges, while more than 460 illustrations emphasize pathologic and clinical appearances of dermatologic problems, providing essential visual guidance for the most informed diagnoses. Enhanced basic dermatologic information, such as general introductions to treatment, treatment options, and rashes, makes this an excellent guide for dermatologist and non-dermatologists, as well as obstetricians and gynecologists.

Abstract
How exciting it is to see a field so well established as the ren- angiotensin system continue to grow and mature. Originally, following the original identification of renin by Tigerstedt and Bergman over 100 years ago, workers in this area spent years attempting to establish its role in experimental and renal hypertension. The early work by Goldblatt, in 1934, demonstrated that the placement of a clip around a renal artery was clearly related to the subsequent development of hypertension. However, it wasn't until the simultaneous finding by two different geographically separated teams, Page, et al, in the United States and Braun-Menendez, et al, in Argentina that the peptide angiotensin was identified. Thus, the rate-limiting enzyme renin was released from the kidney and catalyzed a biochemical cascade which was eventually shown to produce the elevated arterial pressure. Subsequently, many workers contributed to the elucidation of the concept and sequence of angiotensin I1 generation. Thus, the enzyme renin acted upon its protein substrate, produced in the liver, to liberate the decapeptide angiotensin I which, upon circulating through the pulmonary circulation, finally produced the potent octapeptide angiotensin. Several important subsequent findings demonstrated that angiotensin I1 promoted the release of the adrenal corticosteroid from that gland, thereby resulting in a larger system, the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Further, this system demonstrated a classical biofeedback and the circulating octapeptide was shown to have additional biological activities in organs other than heart, vessels, kidney, adrenals, and even brain.

Abstract
Imaging of Newborns, Infants, Children and Adolescents Children and adolescents are not simply small adults; they suffer from different diseases and require different treatments. The same is true where imaging is concerned. The diagnostic strategies--using identical diagnostic instruments--are different; the care prior to, during, and following the examination differs from that of adults. Because the number of Centers for Pediatric Radiology is small, students as well as pediatricians and general radiologists lack training in pediatric radiology and are often not sufficiently aware of these differences. Active radiation protection and avoidence of unnecessary high contrast media doses are number one priority in diagnosing and treating children and can be achieved through: Avoidance of X-rays and CT scans. Substitution with non-ionizing radiation such as ultrasonography and MRI where possible while ensuring diagnostic reliability; Reduction of the radiation dose and number of views. This can be realized by following the ALARA principle: "as low as reasonably achievable" Weight and indication tailored contrast media dosing This CME accredited Manual provides a comprehensive overview on the field of pediatric radiology and suggests imaging strategies for the most common clinical indications in children and adolescents.

Abstract
Imaging of the pediatric chest continues to evolve rapidly. All chapters in this 2nd edition of Pediatric Chest Imaging have been extensively updated, with additional disease-specific information and numerous new illustrations. The book thus presents the state of the art in the diagnosis of pediatric chest disorders, highlighting the role played by advanced technology. As the conventional features of most of these disorders are extremely well known, special attention is devoted to the technical aspects of the modern imaging modalities, their indications, and the diagnostic information that they supply. Individual chapters focus on chest ultrasound, nuclear medicine imaging, high-resolution chest CT, helical CT, and pediatric cardiac CT and pediatric cardiacMRI. Others are directed towards specific disorders, including congenital malformations of the chest, chest tumors, pulmonary infection, trauma, the lung in systemic diseases, the pediatric airway, foreign bodies, the thymus, and the chest wall. Without exception, the authors of this book are internationally known specialists with great expertise in the field. This book will serve as a handy, superbly illustrated reference for all who routinely image children, as well as for those who need access to information on how best to image them!

Abstract
In Risk Prevention in Ophthalmology, many of the questions surrounding medical malpractice are answered clearly, concisely and pragmatically for physicians, by physicians. Written with an emphasis on clinical matters, this book shows ophthalmologists how to avoid lawsuits in the first place. What does "risk assessment" mean in the real world? How truly informed are your patients after signing your consent forms? Do your patients have reasonable expectations regarding outcomes? Are your history-taking and record keeping habits leaving you exposed? Are you sufficiently careful with documentation? What is quality assurance? Covering the legal issues for all of the areas of subspeciality in ophthalmology, Risk Prevention in Ophthalmology provides the busy clinician with the tools necessary to reduce not only the risk of potential lawsuits, but also insights for coping with actual ones.

Abstract
In the last ten years the pediatric neurosurgeon has witnessed a real revolution in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric hydrocephalus, the most frequently encountered condition in everyday clinical practice. The evolution of MRI and the advent of neuroendoscopic surgery have resuscitated the interest in the classification, etiology and pathophysiology of hydrocephalus. The book offers an updated overview on the recent progress in this field, and a new approach to hydrocephalus: the reader will find in it a modern and new presentation of an old disease, where genetics, endoscopy, cost-effectiveness analyses and many other aspects of the various therapies are extensively discussed. The volume will be useful not only for neurosurgeons, but for all specialists interested in the various aspects of hydrocephalus: pediatricians, radiologists, endocrinologists, pathologists and geneticists.

Abstract
Intraepithelial neoplasia (IEN) are some kind of preinvasive lesions. The definition and identification of intraepithelial neoplasia is exceedingly important for early diagnosis and prevention of malignancy. This book introduces for the first time the concept of intraepithelial neoplasia for the entire body in detail and the diagnostic applications of intraepithelial neoplasia in many organs and systems – including the respiratory and digestive systems, pancreas, bile duct, breast, prostate, urinary system, female genital system and the skin. The book features a large number of original figures – 450 – from Chinese patients with detailed descriptions. The book can serve as a diagnostic reference and as a research guide to preinvasive lesions for pathologists, oncologists and scientists. In addition, it will be able to help medical and pathology students improve their understanding of early neoplasia. Prof. Dr. med. Maode Lai is one of the most widely respected pathologists in China. He is vice president of Zhejiang University and Chairman-elect of the Chinese Society of Pathology. His major work is focused on molecular pathology of tumors, especially colorectal cancer.
