This chapter on urology coves surgical and medical diseases of the male and female urinary tract systems and the male reproductive organs. It classifies surgical procedures into those of the upper and lower urinary tract. The chapter is well structured, describing conditions seen commonly in clinic, in the emergency department, and in theatres. Cases and procedures to see and things to do are highlighted for medical students, with adequate background information on them. Common conditions presenting in clinic are discussed, such as haematuria, renal stones, benign prostatic hyperplasia, incontinence, phimosis, lumps, and oncology. It reviews important cases to observe in theatre and provides a diagram of the simple anatomy of the male and female reproductive systems. Acute conditions are covered within the chapter, as well as tips on success in urology in exams. This chapter includes excellent pictures of an intravenous urogram and is written for both those looking to apply for medicine, and those in medical school.
