This book “Challenging Office Cases in Obstetrics and Gynecology” comprises of total 30 chapters. The purpose of this book is to make the office women’s health care provider a little more prepared for the challenging cases seen from time to time. Each chapter covers a complex topic that may be difficult to manage due to its rarity or associated issues outside the usual scope of Obstetrics/Gynecology office practice. Refusal of cesarean section, counseling the adolescent with undesired pregnancy, prenatal care of the surrogate mother, privacy violation in the office, disclosing office medical error, office diagnosis of sexual abuse, office care of the suicidal patient, drug seeking patient, office management of recurrent pregnancy loss, congenital anomaly, stillbirth, pseudocyesis, unsuccessful infertility treatment and elder abuse, etc. are some important topics which are discussed in this book. Familiarity with these topics, before the patients are seen, will allow the practitioner enhanced knowledge to address patient needs, but the chapters are short enough to review so that when a patient with one of the diagnoses presents for care, the physician can quickly review and devise a management strategy.
