All too often adolescents are neglected by the medical specialists -- there are disciplines devoted to neonates, children, and of course the elderly-but adolescents have special needs during a time of rapid physical, sexual and emotional development. This book addresses these issues, highlights the specific diseases of adolescents, and will be invaluable to anyone with an interest in adolescent medicine.
