Our book was written with the intention of filling a gap. It is the work of specialists - university lecturers, researchers, clinicians - who come across the described symptoms in their daily practice.

Many previously published publications deal with the gynecological pathologies discussed in the volume, but from the perspective of genetics as an etiological factor, focusing on the genetic background of pathological conditions and women's diseases, no book has yet been published. Nowadays, science is developing rapidly, and almost all diseases are subjected to genetic testing during research. For this reason, only those pathologies will be presented for which the tests so far have clearly confirmed the genetic background, that is, those pathologies for which the possibility of a genetic cause has arisen, but cannot yet be clearly proven, do not form the material of the book.

We recommend the book primarily to health professionals, geneticists, obstetricians and gynecologists, pedoatric gynecologists, and pediatricians, and those preparing for special exams. Medical students and midwifery students interested in the topic can find important information in it, and it can also be useful for "non-specialists.
