At over 600 pages, with more than 400 illustrations and photographs this text spans everything from embryology to the emotional trauma women undergo when their cervix is removed at hysterectomy.

This is also the most up-to-date text in the field - The editors have referenced work up to October 2005, whilst still including all the classic research material and images where appropriate.

Essential for gynecologists, oncologists, basic scientists especially those involved in HPV (viral)research, GPs, nurses, colposcopy practitioners, and sexual transmitted disease doctors
The only definitive major clinical reference book published on the cervix for thirty years
Including the most up-to-date research on HPV including up-to-date vaccine trial data
Highly illustrated in colour including many surgical procedures
Spanning the entire field from embryology to cancer to emotional trauma
International editorship, with leading names in the field
Cervical cancer is the second biggest cause of female cancer mortality worldwide and therefore relevant to the developing and developed world
Specific chapters related to management of cervical cancer in the developing world
Summaries of recommendations by international bodies including the IARC conference (Lyon 2004), dealing with cervical cancer diagnosis and treatment
The Editors, Jordan and Singer, are the co-founders of the "British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology "

This edition has been radically transformed because of the discovery of the human papilloma virus and its crucial role in cervical cancer since the first edition was published. It also covers the very recent discovery of the vaccine against HPV. It contains a number of new chapters;
Decidual ectopy of the uterine cervix
Immunochemistry and immunology of the cervix
Angiogenesis in cervical neoplasia
Cytology of normal and neoplastic cervical epithelium
Cytological screening for cervical neoplasia
The management of multi-focal precancer of the lower genital tract
Radiotherapy in the treatement of cervical cancer
The management of cervical cancer by radiotherapy and chemotherapy
Vaccines to prevent and treat HPV associated disease
