A vast number of children in the United States are evaluated and treated for urologic conditions by urologists practicing general urology due to the relatively few fellowship-trained pediatric urologists. "Pediatric Urology: A General Urologist's Guide" is written specifically for general urologists as a concise and comprehensive reference of the more common pediatric urologic conditions. Other health practitioners (i.e. pediatrician, family practitioner, residents, medical students, and mid-level providers) will also find this book a key reference. Written by well-respected pediatric urologists, this volume will assist the health care provider to rapidly review the essential aspects of the physical examination, evaluation, diagnostic testing, and management while the patient is still in the office. The chapters are arranged into four sections to allow for easier access to the information: office urology, genitalia, urinary tract, and miscellaneous topics. Furthermore, the first chapter of the book will be dedicated to facts and figures (ex. normal penile and renal lengths based on age, dosing of common medications, and grading system for vesicoureteral reflux) that serves as a single source for this information. "Pediatric Urology: A General Urologist's Guide" offers the reader the essential information to assist them in the care of children.
There are few publications about drug interactionsÂ in chemotherapy andÂ even less about pediatric oncology treatment.

Following that, the most important drug interactions in the treatment of pediatric oncology treatment are presented and discussed in detail. Finally, important topics such as Drug-Food Interactions are addressed.Â Drug Therapy and Interactions in Pediatric Oncology focuses in great detailÂ on the drug interactions in Pediatric Oncohematology and will be an indispensable resource in daily practiceÂ for a wide range of health providers.
John Money's career constitutes the foundation of pediatric psychoendocrinology. In this book he takes a second look at his publications on many different psychoendocrine syndromes, intersexual or hermaphroditic, with respect to sex, gender, amative orientation, and the "lovemap", (his own designation from an individual's experience of sexuality). His ultimate conclusion is that, from prenatal life onward, demasculization of development is not synonymous with feminization, nor is defeminization synonymous with masculinization. This volume will serve to illuminate the evolution of Dr. Money's work and point the way to future investigations in this field.
