This is a concise, comprehensive guide to managing, diagnosing, and treating men and women with sexual dysfunction.


The purpose is to update practitioners who care for patients with sexual problems. The book accomplishes this by exploring the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of sexual dysfunction.


Practitioners in many specialties such as urology, family medicine, and obstetrics and gynecology will appreciatethis book. It is easy to read for clinicians who see the occasional patient with this problem, yet engaging enough for practitioners who routinely manage patients with sexual dysfunction.


The book is divided into two main sections, one on male dysfunction and one on female dysfunction. In each,the book details the relevant anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. Specific topics related to male sexualdysfunction include pathologic classifications of erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, and medical and surgicaltherapies for erectile dysfunction. The section on female sexual dysfunction covers classification, pathogenesis,and medical and noninvasive treatments. The text is well supported by relevant and easy to read tables and charts.Chapters conclude with relevant and current references.


Sexual dysfunction is not commonly recognized by many care providers. It is considered a private matter and onethat is sometimes difficult for practitioners to broach. This book accomplishes its purpose and, moreover, providesuseful references in each chapter to enable engaged readers to further delve into a topic.
