Dr Anyan wrote this book primarily for health care practitioners whose disciplines are pediatrics, internal medicine, and family medicine. The intent of the book is to focus on specific aspects of adolescent health care, development processes, and disorders that are specific to the adolescent. It is not intended to be an encyclopedia for all medical disorders that occur in the adolescent but rather those that are most peculiar to or influenced by the process of adolescence.

The book is divided into three general sections. The first is on organization and conduct of adolescent primary care. This general approach to history taking, physical examination, and the data base is a more than adequate guide to the different approaches to and the different needs of the adolescent, as differentiated from the child or adult.

The second section focuses on the physiologic basis for adolescent care, specifically sexual maturation and the pubertal process.
