The cause to arrange this quantity on antibiotics for the health care professional taking care of girls used to be dependent upon the editor's conception that the subject material had by no means been absolutely constructed for the obstetrician-gynecologist. such a lot textbooks of infectious illness have a small part dedicated to antibiotics, which has little relevance for the health care professional taking good care of post-operative or post-partum infections. easy antibiotic pharmacology is defined and there's a reflex prohibition of antibiotics for the pregnant girl. properly, the reader assumes that the authors themselves don't deal with girls with bacterial infections of the pelvis. contemporary texts in infectious disorder in obstetrics­ gynecology were little greater. even though the focal point has been extra clini­ cally orientated, house requisites have too frequently saved the discussions at a superficial point. a complete concentration upon antibiotics during this quantity removes the restraints of house in earlier guides. the best gift in my job as editor of this quantity is expounded to the standard of the person authors. they vary from former scholars, to con­ transitority colleagues, to revered friends in infectious illness. because the caliber of this quantity is expounded to the sum overall of the person chapters, I desire to remark approximately all the individuals. Philip Mead from the collage of Vermont is an previous pal, who brings to the query of prophylactic antibiotics, his vast scientific event and encyclopedic knowledge.
