MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.

Abstract:

Infections of the genitourinary tract are a common cause of morbidity in both the general population and in patients with compromised immune systems. Genitourinary tract infections can be broadly classified into a) urinary tract infections (UTI) including cystitis, pyelonephritis and prostatitis; and b) genital tract infections including urethritis, cervicitis, epididymitis, genital ulcerative diseases, endometritis, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
